Hoplites were citizen-soldiers of Ancient Greekcity-states who were primarily
armed with spears and shields. Their main tactic was the phalanx formation.
They were primarily free citizens—propertied farmers and artisans—who were able
to afford the bronze armor suit and weapons (estimated at a third to a half of
its able-bodied adult male population). Hoplites generally received basic military training.
In 700 BC, a new military innovation called the
phalanx formation was introduced. This new tactic proved to be a success during
the Battle of Marathon in 490 BC and the Battle of Plataea in 479 BC, when the
Greeks defeated the Persians. The Persian archers and light troops who had
fought in the Battle of Marathon failed when their bows were too weak and
incapable of penetrating the Greek shields, and their own armour and shields
could not stand up to the heavy armour of the Greeks.
The word "hoplite" (Greek: ὁπλίτηςhoplitēs; pl. ὁπλίταιhoplitai) derives from "hoplon" (ὅπλον, plural hoplaὅπλα), the type of the shield
used by the soldiers, although, as a word, "hopla" could also denote
the weapons held or even full armament.
