The scythed chariot was a war chariot with scythe blades mounted on each side, employed in ancient times. The scythed chariot was a modified war chariot. The blades extended horizontally for about 1 meter (3 ft 3 3⁄8 in) to each side of the wheels. The Greek general Xenophon (430−354 BC), an eyewitness at the battle of Cunaxa, tells of them: "These had thin scythes extending at an angle from the axles and also under the driver's seat, turned toward the ground".

The chariot, driven by a charioteer, was used for ancient warfare during the bronze and the iron ages. Armor was limited to a shield. Jeremiah 4:13 Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are ruined. Massed chariot warfare became all but obsolete after the Warring-States Period (476–221 BC). The main reasons were increased use of the crossbow, the adoption of standard cavalry units, and the adaptation of mounted archery from nomadic cavalry, which were more effective.

The history and evolution of chariot warfare from the Mediterranean world to Celtic Britain is detailed in a book that is a font of knowledge―and a pleasure to read.
