Plutarch was an admirer of traditional Spartan virtues; this is reflected in Volume III of the Moralia, which includes the essay "Ancient Customs of the Spartans" and "Sayings of Spartans" as well as "Sayings of Spartan Women." The last records statements about the role of women as mothers and expressions of Spartan values--these are women reproducing the values of their culture. Among the other three essays here is "Bravery of Women," a selection of anecdotes recounting the actions of brave women; Plutarch calls it a supplement to a conversation on the equality of the sexes. Plutarch's fluent and genial style make his Moralia a pleasure to read.
