Product Description

This is a replica of an Ancient Greek Hoplite Athenian Shield, bearing an owl: the emblem of Athens. The shield, ("aspis" in Greek), was carried by Greek infantry (Hoplites) of various periods, and is often referred to as a Hoplon. A Hoplon shield was a deeply dished shield made of wood. Some shields had a thin sheet of bronze on the outer face, often just around the rim. in some periods, the convention was to decorate the aspis; in others, it was left plain.
