See note to next chapter, as to the use of the shield, and the enarmes,and guige.
By aid of the guige, the shield, when not in use, could be carried at the back.
The shield was attached to the wearer by a thong passing round the neck, called the guige.
The guige or strap for suspension has already been described, as to its purpose, in our first division.
The Round target supported by its guige appears in a group of fighters in Harl.
This "guige" was another most valuable improvement which probably came from Sicily with the new shape of shields.
