The Spartans

Part 1:  Syssitia in Competition

By Merlin

At age 19 each young Spartan woman was required to enrol for one year in an Agoge (a sort of boot camp) where they were trained in the military skills including unarmed combat. At the end year a tournament was held to determine the best fighter of the year.  Each Agoge house (known as syssitia) sent their best fighter to the competition.  In this story we see the 4 best fighters of the Agoge compete to be champion who then takes on the champion from the men's Agoge.
Here are the first 9 pages of one of the female fights.  Enjoy!
