Title: we will not be subjugated
Post by: SonofSparta on 22 Oct, 2021, 06:12:59
I’ve seen this quote before but can not find it again. Want to use this in my Spartan/Olympian sleeve.

“We will not be subjugated”

Maybe these will help:

never give up → μήποτ' ἀναχώρησον,  μήποτ' ἀναχώρασον (https://www.translatum.gr/forum/index.php?topic=46966.0)
with it or on it → ἢ τὰν ἢ ἐπὶ τᾶς (https://www.translatum.gr/forum/index.php?topic=50212.0)
give them nothing, take from them everything → αὐτοῖς μηδὲν δόντες πάντα λάβετε (https://www.translatum.gr/forum/index.php?topic=192775.0)
so much the better; we shall fight in the shade → πάντα ἀγαθά... εἰ ὑπὸ σκιῇ ἔσοιτο πρός αὐτούς ἡ μάχη (https://www.translatum.gr/forum/index.php?topic=20897.0)

Spiros, thank you I had these already, and have them in ink on my sleeve already. except for leonidas’ reply to Xerxes when he stated they had so many archers the arrows would blot out the sun. Honestly though I am looking for the translation for the phrases I asked for.

Something like: οὐκ ὑποταχθησόμεθα
ὑποτάσσω - Ancient Greek (LSJ) (https://lsj.gr/wiki/%E1%BD%91%CF%80%CE%BF%CF%84%CE%AC%CF%83%CF%83%CF%89)

Sadly, our resident classicist passed away, so unless someone has a better idea...

I’m so very sorry to hear that, there are not many that can translate into Ancient Greek anymore. Sad to hear of the loss of such a talented person that helped so many. Thank you for your attempt it is very much appreciated.
