The Hoplite is the weakest of the elite infantry units which are trained at the Academy at Bronze Age. They are great at countering cavalry.

Hoplites are elite Infantry units with a high amount of damage. The Hoplite can easily bring units down, but are relatively slow and vulnerable to archer fire. The Hoplites are best used in hand-to-hand combat. The Hoplite can be upgraded to the more powerful Phalanx, and finally the Centurion, the most powerful infantry unit. The Greeks have the fastest hoplites.

Hoplites and their successors are the most powerful non-siege units in the game.
