Great entry. Its factual detail will prove useful for those studying Pyrrhus, while the 'Flaming Pigs' section and the extensive use of historic sources (ie Plutarch) gives the article a more advanced level of analysis and places it within its interesting wider context.

As an intresting historical note the Molossians were famed for breeding huge war dogs. These dogs eventually became the basis of the Molossus breeds of dogs. These are the big dogs we see today ie: St. Bernards, Rottweilers, the various Mountain Dog breeds and the various Masstif breed.
