  • Shield Quiz

    Hello
    I decide to collect some shields from the Ancient period.

    Why not have some fun and try to name all of them?
    Have fun...
    Best regards

    This is way out of my league but I'll guess on one of them. The trident looks similar to one used on coins from Greece, possibly the Boeotian provence to be more specific. Is this an ancient Greek shield?

            Oh the top right is a late roman shield, the one with Medusa on it looks like it would be a Greek hoplite's shield. the one in the bottom right looks like it would be some type of near east infantry shield not sure though.
