DD #1 for Lisa in the $800 Around the Adriatic window, who’s progressed to $6200; Peter’s bumped to $10,400 & Matt’s reached four large. This is her $1K answer.

Italy has the longest coast on the Adriatic, from the Strait of Otranto north to this gulf named for a coastal city.

“What is Trieste?”…sorry- what is Venice? She checks out DD #2 at the $1600 section of Historical Fiction just as she drives to the $12K mark, $4400 off the leader’s pace; the male challenger’s score has gone backwards to $2800. She’ll gamble two.

Gates of Fire was an epic novel of this epic battle in ancient Greece.

“What is Thermopylae?”…that was it. Time elapses before the final two clues under A Category of Few Words.
