The Greek Hoplites were the most feared soldiers of the 7th through mid-4th centuries B.C. Armed with long spears for stabbing, short swords, helmets and heavy shields, they charged the enemy in close formation. Holding a shield in one hand, they advanced in an unbroken line, presenting the opponent with a barricade of spears. Their helmets were designed to protect the face and throat, an otherwise easy target. Many helmets had distinctive nose pieces and elaborate horse-hair crests. This Leonidas warrior bust wears an early Corinthian hoplite helmet with characteristic cheek guards designed to cover the face.
