in 273 bc, king areus of sparta was away with most of the army when his unpopular uncle cleonymus invited king pyrrhus of epirus to invade sparta. areus’s son acrotatus was having an open affair with cleonymus’ beautiful young wife, chilonis, so cleonymus brought pyrrhus’ large army to sparta to avenge a cuckold’s wounded vanity.
the night pyrrhus arrived before sparta, chilonis tied a noose around her neck, resolving that if sparta were taken she would commit suicide rather than live another day with cleonymus.
the battle began the next day. prince acrotatus collected 300 spartans, sneaked around behind the enemy, and killed many of pyrrhus’ men. all the city saw what he had done, and the old men shouted: "go on acrotatus, be happy with chilonis, and give sparta brave sons."
