The muscle cuirass is one of the most recognizable pieces of Greek armor. This version represents it's classic style originating from the early 5th century BC. By this point the muscle cuirass was closely modeled to the musculature of the body, as opposed to earlier more abstract versions. Instead of having a flange at the bottom like the previous version know as the bell cuirass, it curves up at the sides to allow free movement of the hips. This type of armor was originally worn by the Spartans and other Greek city-states. Around 450-425 BC the Spartans abandoned the use of body armor it an attempt to become more mobile, and soon other Greek armies followed. The Muscle cuirass made a resurgence around 360 BC and continued in use for some time afterwards. Like many aspects of Greek culture the Muscle cuirass was adopted by the early Romans.

This version is made of brass and Fits a up to a 47 inch chest, 40 inch waist and measures 21 inches from neck to waist. Weighs approx. 11 Pounds.
