king pyrrhus attacked sparta when areus, the spartan king, was away on an expedition in crete. sparta had no fortifications, and the defenders were too few to keep up resistance for long. but the spartans’ bravery made up for everything.

the night before the battle, the spartan assembly wanted to send the women to crete. but the women refused to leave, and joined the old men in the work on the fortifications.

of all the spartans who did marvellous things during the battle, phyllius killed the most enemies. many wounds made him faint from loss of blood, but before he died he managed to crawl behind his comrades so that the enemies could not carry off his body. when most of the spartans were wounded or dead, areus returned from crete with 2000 fresh soldiers. frustrated, pyrrhus gave up on sparta.
