A chariot is a type of two-wheeled vehicle pulled by domesticated horses. Chariots were widely used in Classical antiquity by armies as transport or as archery platforms.
Chariots were said to be introduced by the Hittites, a major rival of Egypt for dominance over the Middle East. Since their introduction, chariots were used in warfares by countries throughout the Mediterranean and West Asia.
During the 1st century BCE, chariot races were common in Egypt and often took place in the Lageion Hippodrome in Kanopos. Chariots were also used as a form of transportation by military as well as the Medjay Bayek of Siwa.
