Document Summary

Basic shield and spear is about a month"s wages of a standard labourer. Breastplate is a lot more expensive - 3 months wages. Hoplites are wealthier than the general population but are not that wealthy. The thetes would basically be with a shield and a spear. Battle of mantinaia (418 bc) - a typical hoplite battle. Armies line up on the plane and approach each other. This naturally happens in all hoplite battles bc the guy at the very end of the line creeps to the right bc he doesnt want to get hurt. This is why the archon at the battle of marathon were commanding the righ: the spartan commander notices this and decides to order the guys on the right to move to the middle. So the athenisas rush into the gap in the m iddle. The mantineans (athenian) defeat the sciritae and neodamodes. The argives (spartan) and the allies freak out and run.
