Controversial Byzantine armour,  the 'mirror' klivanion Found in only a handful of frescos it is often thought to be an artist''s fantasy. Created under the the careful hand of Dimitris Katsikis, tested by the group Koryvantes this subject of experimental archaeology comes to life and proves to be a robust and unique form of armour.
