Aspis, Greek Shield of the Hoplites, unpainted
A replica of a Greek Hoplite shield also known as Aspis or sometimes falsely called Hoplon. Shields of this type were carried by the Hoplites (old greek for heavily armed), the infantry of the ancient greek armies.

It is made of plywood with a thickness of approx. 3 cm, was completey covered with canvas and hand-primed in white. Thus, the owner is able to paint the shield individually and decorate it with e.g. a capital Lambda as the symbol for the historic city state of Sparta, a small owl for Athens or a sphinx for Thebes. The shield's rim is approx. 95 mm wide, the inner bulge is approx. 79 cm in diameter.
