History Edit

This unit, known as the Hypaspistai, or hypaspists were probably armed as hoplites rather than as pikemen in Alexander the Great's Macedonian army. In battle they were probably armed with the Greek aspis (shield), spolas or stola body-armor, helmet, greaves and a xiphos although their equipment might be more ornate than main-line soldiers.[1]
