Titera’s Tidbit: Laconic
As the story goes, Alexander the Great once led his army to the gates of a city in Laconia, what is also called Sparta. The Spartans were people of few words, but much action. Alexander threatened them by saying, “If I seize this city, I’ll kill the men and enslave the women and children.” The reply came, “If.” Alexander spared the city, impressed by the couldn’t-be-bothered economy of the retort, whose meaning is preserved in our word.
