Details

This pack contains a Spartan DBA Sacred Enclosure.

The complete set shown here consists of a large Dokana which is used as a gate to the enclosure and four sections of strengthened stockade, leaving ample space for a camp follower element to be placed within.

The Dokana, or beam-figures were a symbolic representation of the brotherly love of Castor and Polydeukes, the military protectors of Sparta. It is very likely that a Spartan camp which probably consisted of little more than the men and their baggage, would include at least one small enclosed area that served as headquarters for all the military operations and religious ceremonies and were where the treasure and all important documents were kept. Such a sacred enclosure would have certainly been put under the protection of the Gods, symbolised by a Dokana.
