Infantry was the dominant military arm in ancient Greece, and the Spartan infantry eclipsed all others. A Spartan hoplite (footsoldier) wielded a pike of seven and a half to nine feet in length, which he handled more skillfully than his opponent did his own weapon of lesser stature. He donned a helmet, breastplate and greaves and carried a short sword at his waist.

He held so large a shield that it could be used as a stretcher to carry wounded from the field. This shield protected its bearer's left side and front, and extended far leftward to protect his neighbor's right side.

Dependence upon a neighbor's shield encouraged each hoplite to keep rank. These trained hoplites maneuvered in a formation, called a phalanx, of at least eight ranks deep. The Spartan phalanx was the most formidable sight on battlefields in the fifth century B.C .

  • The sword of Damocles. Damocles was a man who made a deal with king Dionysius of Syracuse to be kind for a day. Damocles enjoyed this until he noticed a sword hanging above him by a thread during lunch. Dionysius had put it there to teach him that a king is constantly in danger. (Note: while set in Greece, this parable was written by Cicero, a Roman orator.)
  • The harpe sword of Perseus. Called a “harpe” sword in reference to its curved shape, this sword was used to behead Medusa. (Note: The word harpe as used in the myth could have referred to the more traditional scythe, such as Kronos famously carried.)
  • The sword of Peleus. Peleus was a fairly important figure in Greek mythology. It was at his wedding that discord was sown among the gods, eventually leading to the Trojan War. He is most well known as the father to Achilles. His early life is too complicated and long for me to describe it here; I would suggest you look it up for more background. His sword was mainly important due to enchantments placed on it by Hermes, god of trickery.
