Ancient Greek weapons and armor were primarily geared towards combat between hoplites, armored foot soldiers. The most common combat formation was thephalanx, a massed shield wall, which required heavy frontal armor and medium-ranged weapons such as spears. ]Soldiers were required to provide their ownpanoply, which could prove expensive, however the lack of any official peace-keeping force meant that most Greek citizens carried weapons as a matter of course for self-defence. ]Because individuals provided their own equipment, there was considerable diversity in arms and armour among Grecian troops.
The poorest citizens, unable to afford the purchase or upkeep of military equipment, operated on the battlefield aspsiloiorpeltasts; fast, mobile skirmishing troops.
Weapons were primarily constructed from iron, wood and bronze.
