ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the peltasts, who were ancient Greek troops. The changing nature of Greek warfare is discussed. Article topics include information about infantrymen known as the hoplites, the Greek way of war known as the phalanx, and the lightening of the hoplites' protective gear, which resulted in a greater susceptibility to the threat of missile-equipped enemy troops.
