Blog Number 149 - '300' Spartans' cuirass

Here is an image of a cuirass which I mentioned in Blog Number 147. The bronze 'muscle' cuirass was as Nicholas Sekunda wrote in his book 'The Spartan Army' 'modelled to the musculature of the body'.

As the shield, greaves and helmet were essential protective devices, so was the cuirass which has been noticeably absent from the Frank Miller '300' comics.
