The Battle of Thermopylae stands as one of the most heroic moments in all of Classical antiquity. 300 Spartans, led by King Leonidas, held off a Persian army of hundreds of thousands of soldiers for days on end. Eventually, after the betrayal of Ephialtes, they were besieged on two sides and each and every soldier was killed. In this reading response, I would like you to spend half your time discussing the reliability of Herodotus’ as a source for the Battle of Thermopylae. Is he reliable? Why or why not? What evidence can you point to in order to support your opinion? For the second half of the response, I would like you to compare and contrast Herodotus’ depiction of the Battle of Thermopylae with Frank Miller’s depiction of the same battle in his graphic novel 300.
You are expected to use the ancient source as evidence for your argument. In order to receive full credit, you need to cite the ancient source at least three times using in-text, parenthetical citations. You also need to provide a full bibliographic reference for the ancient source at the end of your response. Cited references to the text can either be direct quotes or paraphrases from the text. Make sure to choose your evidence thoughtfully, as you’ll be graded as much on the effectiveness of your source use as on the mere presence of sources.
