The gastraphetes (Ancient Greek Î³Î±ÏƒÏ„ÏÎ±Ï†ÎÏ„Î·Ï‚, lit. 'belly-bow') was a handheld crossbow, used by ancient Greeks. It was described in the first century AD by the Greek author Heron of Alexandria in his work Belopoeica (Ancient Greek Î’ÎµÎ»Î¿Ï€Î¿Î¹Î¹ÎºÎ¬, 'on catapult-making'). It is believed to have been invented around 400 BC.
