Thermopylae is located in eastern central Greece on the only land route large enough to bear any significant traffic betweenLokrisandThessaly. Passage from north to south along the east coast of theBalkan peninsularequires use of the pass. Further west the way is blocked by mountains and theGulf of Corinth. For this reason the area has been the site of several battles.

The ancient name of the region wasMalisafter theMalians(Ancient Greek:Î Î±Î»Î¹Îµá¿ Ï ), aGreektribe that resided at the mouth of the riverSpercheiosinGreece. TheMalian Gulfis named after them. In the western valley of theSpercheios, their land was adjacent to theAenianes. Their main town wasTrachis. In the town ofAnthela, the Malians had an important temple ofDemeter, an early centre of theAnthelan Amphictiony.


Thermopylae(/Î¸É rË mÉ pɨl/; Ancient andKatharevousaGreekÎ ÎµÏ Î¼Î¿Ï Ï Î»Î±Î¹[tÊ°ermopýlai], DemoticÎ ÎµÏ Î¼Î¿Ï Ï Î»ÎµÏ [θermoË piles]: "hot gateways") is a location inGreecewhere a narrow coastal passage existed inantiquity. It derives its name from itshot sulphur springs.[1]"Hot gates" is also "the place of hot springs and cavernous entrances toHades".[2]

Thermopylae is primarily known for thebattlethat took place there between theGreekforces including theSpartansand thePersianforces, spawning the famous epitaph beginning with "Go tell the Spartans". It is also the locality of the cityAnthela(ἠνθήλη), where the firstAmphictyonyis mentioned

Thermopylae is primarily known for the battle that took place there in 480 BC, in which an outnumbered Greek force probably of seven thousand[5](including the famous 300Spartans, 500 warriors fromTegea, 500 fromMantinea, 120 fromArcadian Orchomenos, 1000 from the rest ofArcadia, 200 fromPhlius, 80 fromMycenae, 700Corinthians, 400Thebans, 1000Phociansand theOpuntian Locrians) held off a substantially larger force ofPersiansestimated in the range 70,000o 300,000[6]underXerxes. Probably one thousand Greeks remained in the pass when most of the army retreated.[7]

For three days they held out between two narrow cliff faces to prevent the use of Xerxes' vast cavalry and infantry force, before being outflanked on the third day via a hidden goat path named theAnopaeaPass. According to the Greek legend, a traitor namedEphialtes of Trachisshowed the path to the invaders. The following epitaph bySimonideswas written on the monument: "Go tell the Spartans, stranger passing by, that here obedient to their laws we lie."
