Hundreds of members of the far-right Golden Dawn party held a torch-lit march at the Thermopylae Pass, some 200km from Athens, on Saturday, to commemorate the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC. The myth surrounding the battle retells how King of Sparta Leonidas held out for three days with just 300 Spartans against thousands of Persians.
