Actually Spartans at Thermopylae were more heavily armed than Persians, and also highly trained and skilled. They were the real elite soldiers of the time. One of the reasons they could resist so long was the Persian soldiers used light armors and less effective weapons against the heavy Greek armor, while being not protected so well from the Spartans' weapons.
