Hiccups and delays aside, here it is. Xena is equipped as an early hoplite; (my headcanon is that, owing to her immense, perhaps semi-divine strength, the bronze is between 4 and 8mm thick- too much for any muscle powered weapon to handle from any angle) packing an early Doru, a Boeotian shield, and a Makhaira sword. Gabrielle’s Amazonian outfit is a composite of Scythian grave finds; she wields a composite bow and Akinakes sword, wears an elaborate phrygian cap, and the trousers and moccasins of a culture seriously weird to Greeks. Other avenues are still waiting to be explored! Don’t forget to reblog, and tell me what you think. I’m absolutely willing to defend my questionable use of snarling Gorgoneiona. Fight me.
person: so when did you know you were gay? me, on the outside: so when did you know you were straight?
me, on the inside: in a time of ancient gods, warlords and kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero. she was xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. the power. the passion. the danger. her courage will change the world.
