Illustration from John Warry's 'Warfare in the Classical World' (Salamander, 1980), shows a Spartan hoplite with the later linen cuirass augmented with bronze helmet, shield and greaves. It recalls the Spartan belief that long hair made an ugly man more hideous, and a handsome man more fearsome.

This hoplite rushes into battle wearing a traditional bell cuirass, supported by a mitra (belly guard) for extra defense, hanging from the bottom of his armour. For the protection of his legs, he wears both thigh guards and greaves, yet goes barefoot. At his side is a kopis (the kopis a little late to be with an archaic bell cuirass--JEB), while he carries his doru and aspis, which bears the device of the gorgoneion, which can also be an iteration of Phobos, personification of fear.
