Strong offense and defense

Strong offense and defense. The shield and buckler (35:2) and the spear and javelin (35:3) represented extremes in weaponry. While the shield was lighter and could be carried without the use of a helper, the larger buckler gave the warrior more protection. The javelin could be hurled at enemies from a distance while the spear served better in close combat.
