The first reference to the city state entering war with its soldiers was in Homer's Illiad, and in the early days of Classical Greek culture, utilized an arsenal of bronze weaponry. The typical strategy of early Spartans involved working through the side of an enemy's army before striking at the vulnerable flank. Following this 'golden age' of Sparta and the beginning of the Dorian wars, their military strength was greatly diminished, before experiencing a revival by the king Lycurgus, bringing about the typical Spartan military form and strategy and greatly expanding his territory.
