The Spartan shield . The Λ (lambda) stood for Laconia their homeland. Not only did it protect the user, but it also protected the whole phalanx formation. To come home without the shield was a mark of disgrace. Rrhipsaspia or "dropping the shield", was a synonym for desertion in the field. Other Greeks often changed the image for every battle or occassion to strike fear in their enemy. (prob. a replica)

Illustration of a Lacedaemonian / Spartan hoplite officer. The shield and kilt (can we just call them skirts?) is particularly cool. Another author unknown (come on Pinners!).
