Fantastic point. I don't believe Leonidas ever won a battle. His only claim to fame was his last stand at Thermopylae. In my opinion that is not a worthy feat to be named the best Spartan General. I am not sure why he is in number 2 in the polls. And also great point in regards to what you mentioned about Lysander. I voted for Brasidas. I would love to hear your thoughts on him.Also, did Leonidas ever actually win a battle that we know of? Or was his only known contribution a single defensive effort and then hopeless last stand? If Thermopylae was all he did, then I hardly think he could ever be considered one of Sparta's greatest generals, despite the tremendous sacrifice he gave.
