Description

Hoplite shield (also known as hoplon or aspis) is a type of ancient shield, which was used by Ancient Greek soldiers called hoplites. Together with sword and spear, such shield was an essential part of warrior’s armament. Large concave shield was usually made of wood; some models had also bronze cover.

Vatican shield is the only one aspis which was survived to this day. It is also known as Bomarzo shield, named after the place where it was found in 1830 year. It is kept in Museo Gregoriano Etrusco, Vatican now.
