Greek Shields

The basic elements of the ancient Greek Spartan body armor consisted of a shield (hoplon, from which comes the name hoplite for the Greek infantryman), helmet and a cuirass or breastplate. The word for an individual soldier's equipment of weapons and armor is panoply.

Made from a combination of materials including iron and bronze, it could be very expensive (as much as the equivalent of a modern car according to some experts).
