PEPLUM in the mainstream

Greek magazine. I don't read Greek so I'm clueless about it but it looks great.

Addendum: Facebook friend ΛΕΩΝΙΔΑΣ ΚΟΝΔΥΛΗΣ says the name of the magazine is "BATTLES & SOLDIERS"

It says 500 in the cover,so maybe its contents about that movie.

I should cleAr that up the last post.
The movie about the
Battle of Thermopylae,
when 500 Spartans
fought to the death
the entire Persian Army invading
Greece in 480 BC.

To clarify, all the numbers on the cover refer to dates. Those titles relating to peplum are as follows:

In the left column:
HYAMPOLIS 500 BC. The Phocians crush the cavalry of Thessaly. (The cover image presumably relates to this.)
SELLASIA 222 BC. Sparta against Macedonia.

Along the bottom:
Great Adversaries: The Battle of Adrianople (378 AD).
