To continue where I left off on my Blog 23.A.1. are two marble statues on the left and right. In my research, this represent landmarks, the left for a river, the river Eurotas and the right, Mount Taygetos.
In this photo is another symbol, epigram, in memory of Spartan courage. On this hill surrounded by mountains, bushes stands the burial mound of the Spartans at Thermopylae and on which the last of them died. As I stand on this commemorative bronze stone I feel some emotion because this place is actually a graveyard remembering the dead Spartans.
