Arrowheads of this type were employed by Greek archers and their Persian enemies from as early as the 6th century BC. Greek archers were lightly armed mobile skirmishers often deployed on the flanks or surrounding high ground in support of the hoplite phalanx. Among the Greeks, the Cretans and the Scythians were regarded as the finest archers of antiquity.
