Engravings are modifications used in Greece during the 5th century BCE. These engravings were added to existing weapons or armor by Blacksmiths, which resulted in better performance.

Engravings were often unlocked by specific proceedings, like killing enemies with a certain weapon type, defeating leaders, defeating Spartan and Athenian soldiers, amongst others. Legendary engravings were unlocked by finding the weapon or armor that had the engraving.

Normal engravings could be upgraded to level 5 by doing these specific actions. The blacksmith Hephaistos' Workshop could upgrade the engraving further up to level 10.

During the Peloponnesian War, Spartan misthios Kassandra often engraved her weapons and armor.[1]
