Persian General: Leonidas, my compliments and congratulations. You surely have turned calamity into victory. Despite your insufferable arrogance......the god-king has come to admire Spartan valor and fighting skill. You will make a mighty ally.
Ephialtes: Yield, Leonidas. Use your reason. Think of your men.
Persian General: I beg you. Listen to your fellow Greek. He can attest to the divine one's generosity. Despite your several insults, despite your horrid blasphemies......the lord of hosts is prepared to forgive all......and more, to reward your service. You fight for your lands. Keep them. You fight for Sparta. She will be wealthier and more powerful than ever before. You fight for your kingship. You will be proclaimed warlord of all Greece......answerable only to the one true master of the world. Leonidas, your victory will be complete......if you but lay down your arms......and kneel to holy Xerxes.
A Persian general is yet again trying to convince Leonidas that he should surrender.
