The legend
Archery has been a skill of great demand and appreciation. Apart from hunting, archers were the legendary defenders of the fortress walls of the city and the ones who offered covering fire during the battle.
The twin gods Apollo and Artemis were masters in archery and protectors of the archers. Philoctetes was one of the most famous archers, who carried the mythical bow of Hercules.

The chess pieces
The king is represented by Caesar, the queen his wife, and the members of the Roman army are the bishop, knight, and pawn. A Roman column so prevalent in their architecture serves as the rook. Their ferocity is symbolized by the aggressiveness of the Archer (pawn) and the Knight. Made from Brass & Nickel Plated Cast Zinc -lacquered coated to prevent tarnishing.
