This is a good quiz! One thing I might note, though, the Spartans lost the Battle of Thermopylae. It was definitely a very hard earned victory for the Persians, made possible only because of Ephialtes' betrayal (as per Herodotus), but the Spartans did lose, and Leonidas was killed there. A better phrasing of the question might be that the Spartans famously battled the Persians, as opposed to having defeated them.

Thank you! I changed it to battled, apologies for it's original inaccuracy (As well as my late reply, though I suppose it was more important of me to change the question in the quiz than to reply).
