Of defensive weapons, the principal one with the ancient Egyptian was undoubtedly the shield. The quilted helmet even was of less consequence, and the cuirass made of metal plates or quilted with metal was of secondary consideration. From the idea of the army of the Egyptians in the time of Ramses II., which the paintings and sculptures in tombs and on temple walls enable us to form, we may picture the armed figure of the Amalekite. It seems that the Egyptians had two kinds of spear, one made of wood, six feet in length, stout, with a large head of iron or bronze, to be used only for thrusting; the other, lighter and shorter, with a tapering head, capable of being darted at the enemy. Besides these there was a javelin in common use, made of reed, with a metal head. It was altogether an inferior weapon, but it was just the weapon-akin to the long tufted spears ^gtraBge ^of jiSL^2L-JTS^TS^ ^n^ c«oo ;n *U 1 A r .L A J a a , noteworthy as the Sinaitic inscriptions.
