Bronze helmet Greek, around 460 BC, south-central Greece. The city-states of Greece were often either united against a common enemy or at war with each other. By the fifth century BC, a key element in warfare were the groups of hoplites, heavily-armed soldiers, whose name derived from the hopla or round shield. Each city-state was defended by its own citizens and the hoplites were usually the richer men, as equipment was expensive.
