  In 480 BC a huge army of Persian King Xerxes, after crossing the Strait from Asia Minor, invaded Greece. To meet the Persians, the Greeks sent an army composed of troops hoplites sent to the allied Greek city:

  • Tag - 500
  • Mantineya - 500
  • Orhomen - 120
  • Arcadia - 1000
  • Corinth - 400

  These were permanent urban units of professional soldiers, heavily armed hoplites sent to the advanced parts until assembled militia. Troops under the command of their own commanders - strategists.

  After taking a comfortable position in a narrow passage between mountains and sea, the Greek army in two days held the line against the Persians, who had a huge numerical superiority. Once a traitor of the local residents spent the Persians, bypassing the Greek defense, there was a threat environment. Obeying the will of the circumstances, the majority of Greek troops retreated, and went to their towns. There were only 300 Spartans King Leonidas, who was not allowed to depart the honor and the law. They were joined by 700 of the hoplite Fespam, 400 Thebans, and all the host local opunt Locri. These warriors were forced to Thermopylae to defend their homeland - Boeotia and Opunts Lokrida through which inevitably ran the way the Persian army. Not expecting to win, but only for a glorious death, the remaining Greeks took an unequal battle and died. However, the Thebans were separated and surrendered.

  Hoplite warrior wears a bronze Corinthian helmet early type with a double crest, giving it a more impressive and aggressive look. Armor made of linen or leather reinforced with bronze plates sewn in the form of scales. Legs reserved bronze anatomical Leggings. In his right hand hoplite holding curved sword with one-sided sharpening - kopis, intended mainly for the chop. Large round shield-goplon decorated decor in a continuous spiral (the symbol of fire), a wheel with four spokes (the symbol of the chariot of the god of war Ares), and wings in the shape of a swastika (a symbol of invincibility).
