The Spartans

Name:The Spartans


Spartans invented the scytale in 500 BC, it was an edgy tree stick, where the sender would wrap a leather-strip around the tree-stick with a written message.

The receiver would then wrap the leather-strip around another scytale and could then read the message

They also used another method, the Spartans shaved the head of a helot( a slave and) wrote a message at the scalp, they then waited until the slaves hair grew out, and sent the slave to the person who should receive the message and the receiver would then shave the slaves head, so he could read the message.
