In the Kerameikos area of Athens, exists the Tomb of the Lakedaemonians (Spartans). The tomb is divided into three compartments and contained the skeleton of thirteen Spartans who were killed during the heavy fighting at the Peiraeus in 403 BCE when Thrasybulus overthrew the Thirty Tyrants. Among the marble blocks of the monument, on which were inscribed the names of the fallen, is one recording the deaths of the two polemarchs, Chaeron and Thibrachus, also mentioned by Xenophon.

Greek iron spear point and buttspike (sauroter). The blade is elongated leaf-shape design with a central mid-rib, sauroter is thickly cast, terminating in a solid point. Ca. 550-400 BC. H. 35 cm. The sauroter (the Greek word sauroter literally meant 'lizard killer') served as a counterweight to the spear point. It also allowed the spear to be lodged into the ground at an angle to form a defensive formation. In the event that the spear broke, it was often turned to as a weapon of last resort.
