Leonidas meant to kill Xerxes, Yes or No?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
What is your opinion of Leonidas trying to kill Xerxes? I personally think he was trying to kill him, not just trying to make him bleed to show he is not a god.

There are many people also saying that he tried to make him bleed.

What is your opinion head-fi?

He was a warrior trained all his life, I think his throw was solid. Xerxes didn't believe that he could be hurt so thus didn't move. Would it have been nearly as damaging to Xerxes to simply be killed, as it was to prove that he was human and leave him alive to acknowledge that fact?

Why the hell are we talking about this anyway?

He tries to kill him in the book. The line "Xerxes...DIE!" kinda seals the intent.

He tries to kill him. He misses but gets his point across anyway.

well the graphic novel says it all
but I though, and voted no, because by showing he wasnt a god
it would actually hurt him more since he would go from absolute
leader to a piss on
in the same way that he wished for the deformed fella to live forever

It's not that he was right in front of him to easily choose a letal blow vs. a simple bleeding injury. He was too far, he definitely aimed to kill, in the hope of at least injuring him if the spear didn´t land lethally.

Persians kill to live.

Spartans live to kill.

We are talking about this because it has been a debate between a ton of people, and you posted in this thread....
