Long Description

This is a expertly-worked crescent-shaped piece of bronze. The boss of the shield has been ornamented with intricately-wrought bronze myrtle leaves that shade to blue-green in places. Its shape is such that, although it provides less comprehensive protection than a larger shield, it is much more maneuverable.

Appraises As

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

Acquisition

Hoplites in Ephebe carry these.
