What kind of weapons did the Spartans use?

The Spartan’s main weapon was the dory spear. For long-range attacks, they carried a javelin. The Spartiates were also always armed with a xiphos as a secondary weapon. Among most Greek warriors, this weapon had an iron blade of about 60 centimetres; however, the Spartan version was typically only 30–45 centimetres.

What were Spartan swords made of?

All samples found and classified as Xiphe are all made exclusively out of iron. Xiphos-like swords started to appear centuries after typical bronze age designs such as the Naue II and others transitioned from bronze to iron. This fact serves as further evidence that Xiphe were never made out of bronze.
