Classical Period: This is a photo commemorating the Battle of Thermopylae. I chose this photo because it shows the impact Greek history still has in modern times since it is a poster for the movie 300. However, I also chose it because it shows the immense power of the Persian army. For the Greeks to have won in battles like Marathon and many others at sea, they had to have power and intelligence of their own.
