This paper sheds light on the emergence and the growth of the Athenian hoplite class. It deals with the several types of the hoplites which the political and economic circumstances of the archaic and classical Athenian society led to their existence, such as the hoplite citizens and the farmer hoplite. I try through this paper to clarify the relation between the military role of the hoplites and their deserved social rights as citizens, in order to show their real social position in the Athenian society
