A unique reenactment of a Greek hoplite (rather a general or commander) by the Spanish historical association and reenactment group Athena Promakhos (copyright: Athenea Promakhos /Denis F.). Kudos to them for their fine work on the topic of ancient Hellenic warfare.

The hoplite’s typical Corinthian helmet bears two elevated crests (‘double crest’) and relief decorations of a lion on each of its cheek-protectors. His periheiris (περιχειρίς) that is his upper arm-protector bears a relief of Medusa, an emblem that allegedly weakened the enemies.
