Odd. Except for the Krypteia, none of the "Spartan Facts" are uniquely Spartan, though they are Classical Greek. The Agoge was specifically Spartan, but didn't make the list. And I find Greek scholars arguing about what "mothrax" meant in a Spartan context, even though the term is used to describe two of their best generals.
