The Greeks are known great achievements in politics, philosophy, sculpture, literature and mathematics, were also fearsome warriors. In those days there were not many units as devastating as the Greek phalanx. In more armored and well trained, these soldiers were able to withstand any opponent. The phalanx was a military unit, consisting of men standing in several rows, the armed large shields, long spears and swords. Greek swords were dual-purpose weapon with a blade listovydnym. Greek swords often have unusual hilt and scabbard, decorated with scenes of ancient Greek.

The first such weapon is described as a curved sword, scimitar-shaped, the main weight of which falls on the cutting edge by expanding cloth. The handle is sometimes ends in the shape of a figure head of the bird or animal, or bent backward to protect the joints of the hand, forming a kind of brass knuckles.

The polar mass uses the corridor consisting of lands lowest of the region Center-West and approaches the portion south of the Amaznia, when in time C can arrive the 10. also for the thermal intensities annual superiors, needed for the extension of the continentalidade.
