thank for posting this URL, which leads to "related posts", including the one about Nikos Kazantzakis. Of course, I have seen Zorba the Greek ..... and cherished his THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST. [many years ago, my book was borrowed and never returned]

How did the Spartan "greatness" end?

I realize my question probably has a complicated answer. I am looking for information on how the Spartans met their demise. They were once mighty soldiers and a powerful (were they a city-state) - but that all ended. How?

I know that powerful empires, kingdoms, city-states - it all comes to an end eventually. That's the way history is. I want to study the ending for Sparta. I heard that it was a combination of factors. Wars taking a toll, not being able to sustain the lifestyle that gave them so much success, etc. Any resources you can share so I can do my research are most appreciated, as well.
