Spartan Short Muscle Cuirass, steel w. bronze finish

Beautiful, wearable heroic cuirass made of steel with bronze finish.

In the Greek Archaic period, the conventional armour of the soldiers of Sparta essentially consisted of a shield, a pair of greaves (shin guards), a flanged corselet (breast and back plates) made of bronze and an Illyrian or Corinthian type helmet. Additional pieces of armor such as arm guards or other protective plates for the lower abdomen, the thighs, the ankles etc. would also be occasionally used.

However, in later times, the Spartiates were only lightly armoured for battle, usually with a crimson tunic made of linen fabric (a so-called chiton) and a pilos helmet only. Whether or not the Spartan Hoplites wore torso armours during the Persian Wars and, if so, which type, remains a controversial issue: While some argue that Sparta's warriors in all likelihood continued to wear even more sculptured bronze cuirasses, others defend the idea that the Linothorax (a composite breastplate made of linen) had already established itself in the meantime.

This premium piece of armour is modeled on historical examples. Add a Greek or Roman tunic and a Spartan helmet and the panoply will be complete. A stunning addition to every collection, also suitable for costume and media productions.

Our Spartan muscle cuirass is made of steel. Its bronze finish provides for an authentic ancient look. A decorative emblem adorns the front side. The edges of this two-piece corslet are flanged.

Delivery includes back plate and fastening hooks.
