Historical Background

Pelte refers to the small round targes carried by the peltasts. The peltasts were light infantryman of ancient Greece, probably originating from Thrace in the 5th century BC. They carried a large shield, short sword, and spear but wore no body armor. They would become the standard model for all Greek armies over the next several hundred years.
