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.
The oval bronze shield is about three feet long and about two feet wide. It is made of bronze and looks like it could be held as a shield.
Some of the Ephebian mercenaries in Djelibeybi and it's harbour.
Hoplites and armouries in Ephebe have these too.
