Sign for Thrace in "Pride Comes Before a Brawl"
|First Appearance||HTLJ "Pride Comes Before a Brawl"|
Though not actually seen, the Barker mentions having brought his show to Thrace, where it was apparently a big hit with the king.
Iolaus mentioned Hercules fighting a Sea Serpent in Tharce. ("Hercules in the Maze of the Minotaur").
- In real life, Thrace was a region on the northeastern fringe of Greece, beyond Amphipolis and adjacent to Macedonia. Although a rugged frontier region during the Classical period, centuries of Macedonian and later Roman dominion rendered the term largely obsolete, as it was incorporated wholly into those empires. Today, the ancient region is divided between the modern Greek state and Bulgaria.
- The sign pointing to Thrace in "Pride Comes Before a Brawl" is in fact utter gibberish. The first and fifth letters are not Greek at all and the remaining letters (ΛΠΣ) are lambda (L), pi (P) and sigma (S). "Thrace" in ancient Greek is ΘΡΑΚΗ.
