Example text

A fragment of shoulder guard and a breastplate have also been tentatively recognized among the numerous fragments of bronze found together with the cuirass. Of course, the bronze protective plates may not necessarily have been located all over the armour. It can also be reasonably assumed that this was a nonmetallic cuirass reinforced with some of the bronze plates placed on the chest and shoulder area, with shoulder guards and belts. Moreover, several fragments of armour have been found in other tombs.

The hypothesis can be made that this is a scale cuirass based on its closely spaced criss-cross design, the general stiffness of the outfit, the presence of neck protection, and by the fact that a large number of bronze scales have been found in the same area. (1) Knossos, (2) Pylos, (3-6) Mycenae, (7 and 8) Kos. The fragments show warriors clad in Late Achaean corselets and wearing different kinds of helmets. Although the drawings here are very stylized, they do correspond to specific archaeological finds.

Funerary costume was composed of different elements according to the deceased's social rank. Together with weapons, the typical grave goods of a chieftain consisted of bronze vessels and palatial vases, such as can be found in the grave of Zafer Papoura in Crete. The grave contained two spears and two swords of the D1 type, together with a two-handled bowl, a mirror and a frying-pan-shaped lamp. THE WARRIOR IN BATTLE As shown in artistic representations, the bow was used both by infantry warriors and charioteers, though in battle tactics of the later period archers normally fought on foot at the beginning of the action and behind the frontline warriors.
