Daxos is likely a Commander or King of Arcadia. He meets up with the Spartans when they are heading to the Hot Gates (Thermopylae). Daxos questions Leonidas as to why he has so few soldiers. Leonidas responds by asking a few of Daxos's men what their profession is. The Arcadians answer with potter, sculptor, and blacksmith. Leonidas asks his own soldiers their profession, and they all answer as one with the Spartan battle cry for war and death. Leonidas tells Daxos, "You see, old friend, I brought more soldiers then you did," implying that he doesn't consider Daxos's men to be real soldiers.
