Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The aklys (Latin aclys, Greek agkulis) was a Roman javelin measuring approximately 2 m. (79 in., 6.6 ft) in length, thrown with the aid of a leather strap or amentum. Every soldier was issued at least two.The term also applies to a small mace or club equipped with spikes, attached to one arm of the wielder by a strap of adjustable length to enable the weapon to be retrieved after it had been hurled at an enemy. Its use probably goes back to the Osci tribe of southern Italy.The weapon is also described as a dart and as a throwing stick or boomerang.The javelin throw is a track and field athletics throwing event where the object to be thrown is the javelin, a spear approximately 2.5 metres in length. Javelin is an event of both the men's decathlon and the women's heptathlon. The javelin thrower gains momentum by running within a predetermined area.
