✎ Reference Information.
πŸ”Ž Hoplites were citizen-soldiers of Ancient Greek city-states who were primarily armed with spears and shields. These existed at times in Athens, Argos, Thebes (Greece), and Syracuse, among others. Hoplite soldiers made up the bulk of ancient Greek armies. In the 8th or 7th century BC, Greek armies adopted the phalanx formation. The formation proved successful in defeating the Persians when employed by the Athenians at the Battle of Marathon in 490 BC during the First Greco-Persian War.
πŸ”Ž Hoplites carried a large concave shield called an aspis (often referred to as a hoplon), measuring between 80–100 centimetres (31–39 in) in diameter and weighing between 6.5–8 kilograms (14–18 lbs). The main offensive weapon used was a 2.4–4.5-metre (7.9–14.8 ft) long and 2.5-centimetre (1 in) in diameter spear called a doru, or dory. It was held with the right hand, with the left hand holding the hoplite’s shield.
πŸ”Ž Hoplites also carried a sword, mostly a short sword called a xiphos, but later also longer and heavier types. The short sword was a secondary weapon, used if or when their spears were broken or lost, or if the phalanx broke rank. The xiphos usually had a blade around 60 centimetres (24 in) long; however, those used by the Spartans were often only 30–45 centimetres long.
πŸ”Ž Literally: “You gave a knife, you’ll take a knife“. Equivalent to: “You live by the sword, you die by the sword.” This is quoted in the New Testament (originally written in Greek). When the Roman soldiers appeared to arrest Jesus, one of Christ’s companions pulled out a knife to protect him. Jesus stopped him and told that quote verbatim.
