Greek and Macedonian Helmets and Shields Reproductions
Below are reproductions of ancient Greek and Macedonian helmets and shields. They are made of bronze, bonded bronze, steel, and resin. Among the ancient bronze Greek helmets are Cretan, Corinthian, Thessalian, Athenian Attic and Spartan. We also carry reproduction of the helmet of Alexander the Great, used in the movie "Alexander" by Oliver Stone, and worn by actor Colin Farrell who played the role of Alexander the Great. The Macedonian shields were unique in their design and they greatly differed from the shields of the Romans and Persians. In the middle would be the Macedonian royal star symbol with either 16 or 12 rays, or the bust of the Macedonian king or god/goddess. The ancient Macedonians made their shields of bronze, but sometimes plated them with silver and gold. The famed Macedonian "Silver Shields" were the backbone of the army of Alexander the Great and after his death served superbly in the armies of later Macedonian kings in Syria and Egypt. The Macedonian shields were used not only by the armies of ancient Macedon, but also by the Ptolemaic and Seleucid armies which ruled Asia and Egypt after Alexander. These shields are excellent as showoff decoration for a home. Each reproduction comes with a hook in the back for easy wall-hanging as well as handles to carry.
