HG19 Thureophoroi


The Thureophoroi were light peltasts in the Hellenistic armies. They wore leather armour, if any, bronze helmets and carried an oval, wooden shield, the thureos, in battle.
They had a lot of heavy javelins, and a short hoplite sword. They were skirmishers and ambushers.
Provided open handed without spears. (The spears in the photo are made from a washing up brush, which means they flex!!)
