Etymology Edit

The hoplite was the Ancient Greek rank and file soldier. Hoplite combat was centered around a single idea: that battle should be bloody, horrible, and decisive. Though they were required to bring their own equipment, they typically fought with spears in a phalanx formation. The best-known of the hoplites were the Spartans.
