Ancient Greek weapons and armor were primarily geared towards combat between hoplites, armored foot soldiers. The most common combat formation was the phalanx, a massed shield wall, which required heavy frontal armor and medium-ranged weapons such as spears.[1] Soldiers were required to provide their own panoply, which could prove expensive,[2] however the lack of any official peace-keeping force meant that most Greek citizens carried weapons as a matter of course for self-defence.[3] Because individuals provided their own equipment, there was considerable diversity in arms and armour among Grecian troops.[4]

The poorest citizens, unable to afford the purchase or upkeep of military equipment, operated on the battlefield as psiloi or peltasts; fast, mobile skirmishing troops.

Weapons were primarily constructed from iron, wood and bronze.
