Transcript of Greek Weapons

The Spear
The spear, also known as the dory, was very important to the Greeks. They were 6 to 8 feet long with an iron head, a long wooden shaft, and a bronze end. The bronze end was used in case the iron head broke.
The Sword
Many hoplites used swords in battle. Most swords were double edged and considered a secondary weapon. They were used only after the spear was thrown or broken.
The Ballista
The ballista was an ancient type of crossbow and one of the most powerful weapons in ancient Greece. It was very helpful during seiges.
The Armor and Shield
The armor of the Greek soldier protected them in battle from arrows, spears, and swords. The shield was used to smash many spears to destroy enemy chances.
