  • Description: The mise-en-scène, the public 'outing' of cowards, the fresantes (the 'tremblers') who were compelled to broadcast their misery, to submit permanently to humiliation and insult, served as a lesson to each citizen: at least at the personal level, the risk of military failure was very real.11 There is a moment, a single moment, when we find reference to a panic amongst Spartiate authorities-it is in the aftermath of the debacle on the island of Sphakteria. From symposion to syssition; from the Louvre as royal palace to the Louvre as republican museum; in both cases a symbol, which was at the same time beautiful and provocative, has been altered to bear an educational character.
