The shield is an active defense weapon since unlike the weapons that protect "clothing the body" (shell, helmet, etc.) the shield can be moved by its carrier, pushing with it could break through and break the narrow rows enemies

The shield was not usually abandoned as a matter of honor, but also because it was not so simple in a moment of danger to run and discard a shrouded shield. The fact of not abandoning his shield on the battlefield was interpreted as a symbol of the warrior's courage.

The closed training and being able to protect with the partner's shield was a guarantee.
