Long Description

This shield has been constructed out of seven thick layers of ox-hide stretched over a wooden frame, with a final eighth layer of beaten bronze on top. The image of an olive tree, laden with fruit, has been laid into the centre of the shield with silver. Although not as durable as those made entirely of steel, this shield makes up for it by being beautiful as well as practical.

Appraises As

The seven-fold oxhide shield is about five feet long and about four feet wide. It is made of leather and bronze and looks like it could be held as a shield.

Acquisition

Can be bought from Oplaphoros in Ephebe.
