In this battle, which took place in 480 B.C., a force of approximately 300 Spartans under the command of Leonidas I, along with warriors from several other Greek city-states, held off a much larger Persian force for several days at a mountain pass.  Although all Spartans were eventually killed, this battle served as a symbol of Greek resistance in the face of defeat.
