A photograph of a spectacular looking cuirass from the 4th century BC, which is on display at New York's, Metropolitan Museum of Art. Made of bronze, it is an exceptional artifact of an integral component of the panoply (πανοπλία) of the ancient Greek hoplite (οπλίτη) during the Classical Period. Unlike the movie, "300" which had the Greeks fighting bare-chested, this is one of the types of protection that covered the front and back of the warrior. #Greece #History #Warfare
