Greece: Two-euro coin for 2,500th anniversary of Thermopylae
ROME - Greece will issue a two-euro coin in commemoration of the 2,500-year anniversary of the legendary Battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C., which saw the Spartans of King Leonidas fight and overcome the more numerous Persian army of Xerxes I.

The battle took place over three days with a heroic resistance in the gorges of Thermopylae, the "hot gates", so named because of the numerous hot springs in the area.

Greek media said the announcement was made during the World Money Fair 2020 in Berlin.

Had Greece not won that battle, we'd be Persians today in Europe
