Long Description

This perfectly oval piece of bronze has been expertly worked into a finely-balanced shield. Its shape is such that it can be wielded in one arm while not overly hindering one's movement. There is an intricately-etched figure of a griffon in flight on the central, raised boss of the shield which is so life-like that it almost seems to swoop off towards one's enemies.

Appraises As

The oval bronze shield is about three feet long and about a foot and a half wide. It is made of bronze and looks like it could be held as a shield.

Acquisition

Some of the Ephebian mercenaries in Djelibeybi and it's harbour. Hoplites and armouries in Ephebe have these too.
