LACEDÆMONIANS . In 2Ma 5:9 we read that Jason fled for refuge to the Lacedæmonians ‘because they were near of kin.’ This claim is further set forth in 1Ma 12:2 ff; cf. 1Ma 14:16; cf. 1Ma 14:20 f., 1Ma 15:23 , where we read of Sparta and an alliance with the Spartans . It was, of course, entirely fanciful, the Hellenes and the Jews belonging respectively to the Indo-European and Semitic branches of the human race.
