"There is no warrior more dangerous than one seeking to regain his honor! Meet the Hoplite! Captured alive after the death of his clan, he will stop at nothing to remedy his disgrace!"
―Alba describing The Hoplite.[src]

The Hoplite was a Greek soldier who fought in the Gladiator Arena in Cyrene.

This highly trained individual who utilized a shield and a spear, was challenged and defeated in 47 BCE by the Medjay Bayek of Siwa.


  • The term hoplite is used to describe citizen-soldiers of Ancient Greece who were armed with spears and shields.
  • The Hoplite is wearing a variant of the Korinthian Helmet with stylized horns and animal ears, though this combination is typical for Archaic Greece. However, the use of this helmet, already considered obsolete in the Hellenistic World, could have been a simple personal choice of The Hoplite.
