Product Details

The Spartan Shield was an efficient thing. That cannot be questioned. Originally constructed from wood with a layer of bronze over it, this heavy shield known as an aspis could be used effectively for defense or bashing. A more stylistic reference from modern culture, this aspis would have been used by Spartan hoplites in their phalanx, offering not only a degree of personal defense but also security to the man directly to their left. Known not only as an aspis but also as a hoplon, this shield is set with the capital lambdaa symbol used by ancient Spartans as a symbol of their homeland, Lacedaemon. Also a functional weapon, the weight and blunt edges of this shield would have been deadly - efficient in knocking other soldiers down or unconscious. The Spartan Shield was proof positive that in the hands of an expert warrior, the best defense is near impenetrable and can even be turned into a moderately effective offense. Maybe that is why Spartans were so feared
