The Historical Studies Association "KORYVANTES" is particularly pleased to announce the publication of a new study, in the from of an article, on the internationally renowned magazine "ANCIENT WARFARE MAGAZINE" (issue VIII. 2 - May 2014).
Through the article of our Association’s member Mr. Spyros Bakas is presented extensively for the first time the "Toxarchos"-the commander of the archers during the Classical and Hellenistic period. The Toxarchos (Toxarchis) is a distinctive title for an officer of the archers that appears from the time of Thucydides (the Athenian campaign in Aetolia) and Flavius Arrian, who describes the conflict of Macedonians and Thebans.
The article is adorned with a photo of a high historical accuracy reconstruction of a heavy armoured Toxarchos of the Hellenistic era, based on a rare depiction of a "Hoplite-Archer" from the Nereid monument (currently in the British Museum).
The publication of a new study of our Association is particularly important to us as the publishers of the magazine (www.karwansaraypublishers.com ) honor us for third time with their confidence regarding the historical accuracy of our reconstructions and present our Association through their pages.
