Spartan Women - educated, empowered, and trained and competed in athletics (in a time where no other women in Greece did any of this). Not only were the Spartan men the toughest soldiers that ever lived, but their women were as tough as nails too.

Biblioteca, Vatican, 700 (?) | This image depicts Mary at the tomb of Jesus. It is one of a series of images from the “Relinquary Box” which contains stones from holy sites of Palestine.
