Scutum was the most widely used shield in the Yodotai army since the foundation of the Empire. The original version was a wooden rectangular curved shield. The curvature deflected the strongest strikes and the projectiles, and its weight was not so heavy due it was made from wood. After they met the Sheel Kingdom they copied their version in iron, which gave more protection the wooden version. [1]
