Siriusly? *Insert Sirius Meme Here* This is the battle of Thermopylae, and the Persians win. Sparta had a talented, but "small" army, smaller than the Persians, and were wiped out.
Looks like we win!

Greeks won the Battle of Platea This was a land battle fought between the Greeks and the Persians.
