Pensé que los espartanos luchaban con honor. ¿Pero buscas matarme cuando no tengo forma de defenderme? ¡no es justo!

Pensavo che gli spartani combattevano con onore. eppure cerchi di uccidermi quando non ho modo di difendermi? non è giusto!

ನಾನು ಸ್ಪಾರ್ಟನ್ನರು ಗೌರವಾರ್ಥವಾಗಿ ಹೋರಾಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದೆ ಎಂದು ಭಾವಿಸಿದೆವು. ಆದರೂ ನನ್ನನ್ನು ರಕ್ಷಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲು ನನಗೆ ಯಾವುದೇ ದಾರಿ ಇಲ್ಲದಿರುವಾಗ ನೀವು ನನ್ನನ್ನು ಕೊಲ್ಲಲು ಪ್ರಯತ್ನಿಸುತ್ತೀರಾ? ನ್ಯಾಯೋಚಿತ ಅಲ್ಲ!
