Spartan Hoplites

While the original pinner did not attribute this (grrrr) it looks like the work of José Daniel Cabrera Peña. I honestly don't understand why so many pinners remove the name of the artist/photographer when they pin.

5th/6th c. BC Greek hoplites - only ever seen the helmet with the transverse comb on representations of Spartan leaders. These could be Spartans as at that time Greek warriors used whatever symbol, on their shield, that they wanted.
