Leonidas & Menelaus Appointed Kings of Sparta
Hellas: The Spartan Assembly has appointed the two Kings of Sparta, one will serve as King of the Military while the other is King of the Diplomacy & Trade matters leaving the Assembly to pass laws by popular majority and to hear court trials by majority vote as well. These two individuals will build Sparta up and lead them into the future with the strength of warriors and the determination of a lion.
Already Sparta is faced with several challenges particularly rebuilding after a devestating earthquake not so long ago. Sparta is also dealing with putting its Assembly together and working to gain a significant push on key issues while boosting itself at home and abroad.

Spartan Troops Arrive in Athens, Athenian Stone & Marble Shipments Arrive in Sparta
Hellas: A fearsome sight in their bronze uniforms and helmets over 20,000 Spartans marched into Athens today with their commanders announcing their arrival to the Boule Council before marching out of the city gates to their encampment just outside of Athens. The troops come as word has spread about an impending Persian invasion of 900,000 troops along with a sizable fleet.
The Spartans in returned asked for a sizable shipment of stone and marble blocks to begin the rebuilding process after a devestating earthquake took place in Sparta only two years ago leading to a slave rebellion of Helots which was put down by reinforcements from the Spartan alliance. Already tensions have shown in the relationship between Sparta and Athens with the Spartans refusing to send all 40,000 troops they promised until they received their building supplies. Now with those supplies in place it remains to be seen if mighty Sparta will give the remaining 20,000 which scouts report have been ravaging neighboring Acadia and Achaens over the past few days.
