They sell around $12-$15 USD. I would outright sell you one, if you wanted to go that route. If so, send me a private message.
If you're looking to trade someone, though, you need to make it worth their while. You have to realize that Spartans aren't something anyone can just come by anymore. So, you have to offer something equally as rare or more (some people really treasure Spartans) to give them incentive to giving one up.
If you're offering something that isn't as rare and is still fairly available, you need to offer more than what an equal amount trade would be to compensate for the rarity of the Spartan. That refers to your initial Series 7 & 8 offers, as well as the Series 10 Roman Commander offer. All of those can be easily acquired still. If the Spartan's value equates to 5 Roman Commanders, you need to offer 8. This is just an example, and of my own personal opinion, but given some of the responses here, I doubt it is far off from others who may very likely request more to consider that trade.
For me, I'd consider 4-8 Castle minifigs (Black Falcons, Crownies, Kingsdoms, etc.), 2 Series 6 Roman Soldiers, a Series 3 Elf and Series 6 Roman Soldier, to name just a few, for a trade of one of my Spartans.
Everyone is different, but I've told you what Spartans are generally selling for. You can now gauge your offers against that, and consider what it is you're also offering. (i.e., "Does what I want and what I'm offering come close to the same value?"; "Can they [prospective trade partner] still get this from a nearby store or only me?")
Hope this helps with your next possible updated offer.
