The Spartiates were the athletes of Sparta who were identified at a young age.
Spartiates were trained for battle and put through grueling challenges intended to craft them into fearless warriors.
In battle, they had the reputation of being the best soldiers in Greece, and the strength of Sparta’s forces led to Sparta becoming the dominant state in Greece at several points during the Hellenic period in history.
