These are the Sumerian Spearmen as seen on the Stele of Vultures from the city of Lagash. From the Stele it appears they are ranked up 8 men wide by 6 files deep. It is possible that the front rank spearmen did not carry a spear, but rather carried only an axe and a large body shield to protect the rear ranks of the phalanx. However, this is purely dependant on how the Stele is interpreted, as there is no other source of pictorial evidence. They are dressed in wool, felt or leather kilts as was the norm in this period.
Pack contains 8 metal figures.
