The cataphracts are back

The armors of military saints of the Eastern Roman Empire come to life again in their physical dimensions. Heavily armed cataphracts with an exotic as well as terrifying look are recreated again after centuries, based on available archaeological, artistic and literary evidence of the era (10th-14th century).

Welcome

The ancient Greek civilization sealed with its presence the heroic era of humanity. The rampant instinct of Greeks combined with the prospect of idealization and technological innovation elevated war as merit ranking it in the realm of high art. Throughout Greece’s long journey over the centuries, the armors of gods, demigods and mortals were symbols of glory, bringers of victories, metal safeguards of virtue, talismans of life.

This site hopes to revive in the most attested way the legacy of the heroic era of Greeks.

Dimitrios Katsikis The Artist

Dimitris Katsikis

Dimitris Katsikis was born in Athens.

In 2006-2008, having pursued further studies at Wageningen University in the Netherlands, he earned his postgraduate title from the department of Urban Environmental Management. From early on, his passion for antiquity propelled him to an in-depth study of the respective periods of the Greco-Roman timeline, which led to the writing of a series of personal studies on the political, religious and military aspects of that extended historical era.
