The Greek Hoplite were the most feared soldiers of the 7th through mid 4th centuries B.C. Armed with long spears, short swords, helmets and heavy shields they charged the enemy in close formation. Their helmets as depicted in this reproduction, were designed to protect the face and throat, an otherwise easy target. Many helmets had distinctive nose pieces and elaborate horse-hair crests. This warrior wears an early Corinthian Hoplite helmet with charateristic cheek guards designed to cover the face.
