The Greek phrase Molōn labe!, meaning Come and take them is a classical expression of defiance reportedly by King Leonidas in response to the Persian army's demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae. It corresponds roughly to the modern equivalent English phrase over my dead body, bring it on or, most closely, come and get it. It is an exemplary use of a laconic phrase.
