  1. Probably they wanted to represent Celtic mercenaries in Africa, but zebra are not in North Africa, even during the Ancient Egypt. Same problem for giraff's pelts. And gosh, the bronze age helmet in iron Moreover all the belts are wrong, all the scabbards etc.
  2. Interesting artistic ideas but for the Celtic part that I know the most, this is awfully wrong
  3. So let the women built the homes where they will spend the rest of their lives (joke)
  4. You can garrison the citizen in the house to unblock him.
  5. Agrianes have been confused by ancient authors as Thracians, so maybe some thracian cape for the basic version could be useful. Moreover, Agrianes are Paeonians, and it seems that Paeonians used some illyrian helmets according to their coins: https://www.cgbfr.com/peonie-royaume-de-peonie-patraos-tetradrachme-sup-ttb-,bgr_469398,a.html So why not a mixture of pilos, thracian and illyrian helmets for the elite version?
  6. There are also a statue of Marsyas the satyr/silenus close to the subsellium and Columna Maenia, a statue of Publius Horatius Cocles and a Vulcanal (shrine of Vulcan) both close to the Lapis Niger. Bonus:
  7. Basically, you already have understand the main points. To sum it up, the Rome's Comitium was rectangular until around 300 BC when it got circular stands/bleachers. Sadly, the stratigraphical record is difficult to interpret and the Comitium has been destroyed and rebuilt by Sylla in the 1st century BC. So the historians rely on the changes occurring in the Roman colonies to get hints about the date of its changes. Circular Comitium in colonized cities give a range of possible dates for the adoption of this architectural characteristic, like Cosa (273 BC), Paestum (273 BC), Alba Fucens (303 BC) and Fregellae (328 BC although debated). The author of the linked chapter suggests a narrow range by including the moment when Pythagorean ideas reach Rome and the tribes reforms by Appius Claudius in 312 BC. The two pictures you choose are the Comitium of Cosa and of Paestum. Here, from another publications, the Comitium from Alba Fucens and Fregellae. However, the historical representations of the second century BC Comitium in Rome, is a bit simpler: The Rome's Comitium is associated with the Graecostasis, Columna Maenia, Rostra Vetera and the lapis niger. Statues of Pythagore and Alcibiade are also mentioned.
  8. This is mostly based on the Anabasis of Xenophon. He said that rhodian slingers reach the double than the Persian slingers and even more than most of the Persian bows.
  9. Outside some clear issues as the slingers efficient against structure and lance cavalry against infantry, how battalions will fit in this? In the long term, if it will be implanted, this framework won't survive.
  10. Gauls fighting on a Pergamon relief Reenactors, offensive techniques with the shield
  11. Oh yes, I wasn't suggesting this necessarily. I think the Scythians and the Parthians should be in, but the indo-scythians and indo-parthians are only little different so probably not a priority.
