A chariot is a type of two-wheeled vehicle pulled by domesticated horses. Chariots were widely used in Classical antiquity by armies as transport or as archery platforms.

History

Chariots were said to be introduced by the Hittites, a major rival of Egypt for dominance over the Middle East. Since its introduction, it has been used in warfares by countries throughout the Mediterranean and West Asia.

During the 1st century BCE, chariots races were common in Egypt and often took in place in the Lageion Hippodrome in Kanopos. The Medjay Bayek also used chariots as a form of transportation.
