The hoplitas of ancient Greece, the brave soldiers of infantry citizens, better known for fighting in a formation of phalanx and wield a spear (dory) and a large round shield (aspis or hoplon), commonly represented with a secondary weapon to his side. One of these secondary weapons on the field of battle a sword is straight and relatively short with a blade of double-edged sword called a xiphos, it was quite popular among the Greek armies (among others, the famous spartans). Designed for both cutting and pushing, it was mainly used by the infantry as a backup weapon for melee combat, or when the spear was broken, lost, or taken away in the fray.

Although the examples that survive are extremely rare, historical illustrations can be found in many works of art of ancient Greece, especially in paintings of ceramics that have stood the test of time.
