Three-bodied Cypriot warrior figure c.580 BC From Pyrga, Cyprus. This terracotta figure from a sanctuary deposit is believed to represent a supernatural warrior with three bodies and heads, rather than a close formation of three figures. The heads are protected by conical helmets with cheek pieces and massive neck protectors. Each embodiment once held a round shield and a spear, giving an idea of how hoplites " locked shields " during the final stages of the advance to contact.
