DORIAN SHIELD Greek shield used during the VIIIth century b.c., with the characteristical oval shape with a scallop cut out from either side, known as "Dipylon" after a cemetery in Athens where a large number of representations of it were found. The "Dipylon" shield is almost certainly a direct descendant of the Mycenean figure-eight type shield of the XVth century b.c.
