Decorated by head of Medusa, Gorgon beast with snakes instead of hair, anyone who looked into her eyes was immediately turned to stone.
During the Archaic period, Spartans were armoured with flanged bronze breast and back plates like our new Greek Short Muscle Cuirass with Bronze Finish.
They also wore leg greaves, a helmet most often of Corinthian or Illyrian style.
It is often disputed which cuirass armor the Spartans wore during the Persian Wars.
It seems likely they either continued to wear bronze cuirasses of a more sculptured type, or instead adapted to the linen linothorax style.
After this period, Spartans would often be lightly armoured with a pylos helmet and red tunic.
