Alexander the Great Vs Spartans

Philip II of Macedon. After invading southern Greece and receiving the submission of other key city-states, he turned his attention to Sparta.

he sent the following message:

“You are advised to submit without further delay, for if I bring my army into your land, I will destroy your farms, slay your people, and raze your city.”

Sparta replied with a single word “If”

Subsequently, neither Philip nor his son Alexander the Great attempted to capture the city.
