Macedonians
The sarissa is a type of long spear (about 4–7 metres or 13–23 ft in length) first in­tro­duced by Phillip II of Mace­do­nia in Mace­do­nian phalanx for­ma­tion­s. It was usually composed of two lengths and was joined by a central bronze tube only before a battle. The tight for­ma­tion of the phalanx created a "wall of pikes", and the pike was so long that there were fully five rows of them pro­ject­ing in front of the front rank of men.
