Spelling: spanakopita. - Also would you accept peloponnes? It's hard to always remember the English endings of non-English words.

Spent the last two minutes trying several dozen spellings for "Peloponnese", and never did come up with one that was accepted.

Can't believe more people knew "hoplite" than "spanakopita" (yes it was misspelled in the quiz). Hasn't anyone been to a Greek restaurant?

Yes, really folks, you need to try some spanakopita. It's like a savory baklava – all those layers of phyllo dough, but with yummy spinach in between.
