Spartan Army

Active selection:    
Spartan Army.  The disciplined and well-trained Spartan infantry were more than a match for Hippias' lightly armed Thessalian cavalry.  Inset shows a Spartan hoplite, or heavy armed soldier.  His head, chest and legs are protected by armour, and his principal weapon is a spear.  The device on the shield, a Greek capital L, stands for Lacadaemon, another name for Sparta.  Original artwork for illustration on pp8-9 of Look and Learn issue no 984 (17 January 1981).  Lent for scanning by The Gallery of Illustration.
