Title: Another Greek vase showing a slinger with a shield
Post by Thearos on Oct 23rd, 2023 at 7:51pm
Maybe an Amazon, maybe a Thracian. Slings big stone with medium sling, his body turned away from direction of shot to ensure maximum torque, and he has a shield held in one hand ! But I don't think he has a bag around his body.

The slinger just dropped the pouch.
Thanks for sharing. It looks like the other recently studied image, except for holding the pouch.
Good question, Thearos.
