Blog Number 147 - Greek Spartan statue

Here is a nice little statue which I bought years ago and which shows the armor which would have been worn by the Spartan defenders at Thermopylae.

The main protective pieces of armor are all included on the statue which consist of the Corinthian helmet, the shield and the cuirass which was the body armor which covered the chest and back.
