Molon Labe (Ostensibly written as ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ or μολων λαβε in their native languages, roughly translated into come & take it) is a historical and laconic phrase, likely the most famous of the spartan quotes, which dates back to 480 BC. It is a battle quote from King Leonidas I Of Sparta to Xerxes I of Persia when, upon the request for the Spartans to lay down their arms & surrender, for the Persians to come and take it. This phrase has become more than its initial meaning, today a common phrase used by conservatives defending their second amendment rights in the United States. Alternative spellings include moaon aabe, molon lave, moaan aabe, movon aabe, molonlabe, molin labe and moan aabe. Alternative translations include come and take, come take them, come and get em, come and get them, come and take them, come and take em, and the direct translation having come, take.
