Short Swords (Espadas Pequeñas)

Quote of the Week / La cita de la semana

Plutarch (c. 46 AD – c. 120 AD)

The younger Agis, when Demades said that the jugglers who swallow swords use the Spartan swords because of their shortness, retorted, “But all the same the Spartans reach their enemies with their swords.”

(Plutarch: Morals, Vol. III, Sayings of Spartans)


Agis, el joven, cuando Demades dijo que los prestidigitadores se tragaban las espadas espartanas por lo pequeñas que eran, dijo: «Y, sin embargo, los espartanos alcanzan a los enemigos con sus espadas».

(Plutarco: Obras morales y de costumbres, III. Máximas de espartanos)
