The word "hasta" means spear in Latin. The early Roman legionaries used the hasta. During the republican period, the hasta was replaced on a large scale by the pilum and gladius. The cavalry and auxiliae continued to use the hasta. The pilum was meant to throw from a longer distance, but the hasta was for close combat. It was therefore effective against cavalry. The hasta was historically made of bronze or iron.
