Stefane again thank you and the rest of the crew for the memorable day. But next time we have to get some winter chitones and chlamydae. Big Grin crazy spartans

Stefanos your pictures are excellent! I love the hoplite set up, it is also good to see such a good turnout to such events as well! All the best, Jon

Very good, Stefanos!
Did you have fun? And good reactions from the public?

Hey! I see those cast helmets are preferred by the Hoplites Mores! This is good,they're better than the deepeeka helmets. How were the reactions of the public?

Cast helmets but in aluminium which almost solves the weight problem.
The public before the parade wanted photos with us.
We were particularly pleased when schoolchildren asked us questions because the main purpose of the club is edjucational.
Puzled look from the "offcials" were counterbalanced by the enthusiasm of the spectators

Kind regards

Do you mean that these ones are aluminum? And are they painted? They look much like the cast brass one.
May I suggest a very easy and cheap replacement in the members' equipment? The red chitons with the white lines could be changed with simpler more accurate ones,that each member could make for themselves with a little guidance. It would dramatically improve the overall appearance!
It's very good that people are starting realizing that the demonisation of re-enactors in Greece is a false.

30% now have their own woolen or linen chitons. One has a silken one!
This is something that is easily rectified with time.

Just today I received this helmet. Ken Forbis very kindly donated it to me,and now i have an almost complete set. I need to make a shield. Greaves are nice but not essential yet,and i think the sandals won't wait for long either. Here are some photos.

Well done Yannis.
I presume your shied will be a pleasant surprise to members.

Thank you Bonnie! The helmet has quite a good fit with a thick felt pilos underneath. But this was the case with its original owner too,so I guess I'm lucky in that one,too. Perhaps if I had slightly longer head it would fit better without the pilos. But the ancients some times wore thick felt caps (I know they were thick from sculptures from the Aphaia temple I think) so I'm not inaccurate in that one.

Stefanos, I'm very worried about the shield,mainly because I'm thinking of trying extreme -for me- thing on that piece,too. But first of all I need time (and tools) which I don't know I'll have even in summer. I should have started that project from the previous summer...
