Yeah lately especially if you look RYSE son of Rome's depection of the event it never lives up to how it was in history
I would say Spartcus rebellion is kinda overrated like they escaped the slave camps and ran to a camp for free former escaped slaves and Spartucus became th ere leader and he fought aganist a Roman legion that was by no means a regular full 8 thousand man legion (that is not counting auxiliary units in the size of a roman legion) but these men they fought aganist most likely had either bad commanding or were mainly Hastati (Hastati were the first line of Infantry that moved after the Archers Peltests etc.) Which are considered the 3 weakest of the Pre reform era since I'm to laz y to look up what year it was ill go on if it was after the Marian reform so it would I believe the 3rd legionary cohort sent into battle and mabye they had a few hundred first and second cohort but from what I have read about Spartacus rebellion his army wasn't crushed because he wasnt facing up aganist much it takes a long time to March 10 thousand men from Gaul or Egypt to Magna Gracia
The Battle of Thermopylae. While glorified by Hollywood and some historians. Salamis was ultimately the more crucial battle and Thermopylae was a failure on the part of the Greeks. In short, it was a neat event that lacked any real benefit to the Greeks at the time other than as a form of propaganda.
Yes but thremoplye was historically important it proved that quality was over quantity at the time the Greeks were in disary but this proved that they could defeat the Persians and the troops at Salimas which was in Cyprus did not know what happend at Thermopylae but Salimas was the main focal point of the Rise of an empire movie
