Hoplite with Cypriot Marine Prisoner & Spartan Lambda Shield

Price: $110.00


Thomas Gunn Miniatures

Hoplite with Cypriot Marine prisoner set. A great looking diorama set of a Hoplite questioning a Cypriot Marine recently captured. It comes with the 2 figures pictured, 2 helmets, bronze Spartan Lambda shield, spear and gold cup.
Of note to the Hoplite is the golden cup he has retrieved from the Cypriot, obviously he is hoping for information of the whereabouts of a larger hoard of similar items!

The cup is based on one recently found in a loft in Taunton UK, it dates back to Persian times and features 2 ladies heads facing away from each other and is cast in solid gold. Due to be sold shortly it is expected to fetch £500,000 at auction. The current owner has admitted he used it for air rifle practice as a boy! How it got from Ancient Greece to Taunton is another story but nevertheless an intriguing find.
SPA027 sentry is shown in the picture for effect only and does not come with this set.
Limited Edition of 100.
