Syn Tai e Epi Tai.

When reviewing photos from the Central Michigan game, I noticed something new on the inside of Dan Mavraides' left biceps. It was impossible to make out clearly, but I was pretty confident that it was a tattoo.

After last night's Manhattan game, I had a chance to ask Mavraides about what I saw.

The answer? It is a tattoo (enlarged in the above photo) in Greek of a Spartan quote, paying tribute to Mavraides' Spartan heritage.

It reads Syn Tai e Epi Tai, loosely translated to English as "with it or on it."

If you want to read more about this phrase, its meaning and its origins, see this 2002 column from "The Straight Dope."
