ACO The Hoplite

The Hoplite

The Hoplite was a Greek soldier who fought in the Gladiator Arena in Cyrene.

A highly trained individual who utilized a shield and a spear, he was challenged by the Medjay Bayek of Siwa in 47 BCE, who defeated him with a mace.


  • The term hoplite is used to describe citizen-soldiers of Ancient Greece who were armed with spears and shields.
  • The Hoplite is wearing a Corinthian helmet with stylized horns and animal ears, though this combination is typical for Archaic Greece. However, the use of this helmet, already considered obsolete in the Hellenistic World, could have been a simple personal choice of The Hoplite.
