Aelian, Varia Historia:
Every Spartan mother who learned of her son’s death in battle would go in person to inspect the wounds both on the front and the back of the corpse. If the majority were on the front the mother carried her child to the family cemetery proudly and with a solemn and serious demeanour. But if the wounds were elsewhere, then she was ashamed, lamented, and did her best to depart unseen, leaving the body to be buried in a mass grave or secretly bringing it back to the family’s burial place.

[XII 21]
