  1. Tarantine Cavalry

    The Seleucids employed a number of Tarantine cavalry, either as mercenaries or – more likely – equipped and trained in the "Tarantine fashion". They were present at the Battle of Panium[49] and the Battle of Magnesia.



    At the Daphne parade, there was also a regiment of 'picked', known as Epilektoi, horsemen, numbering 1,000. The Epilektoi were most likely recruited from the city of Larissa, which was founded by colonists from Larissa on the Greek mainland. After the loss of Media, the main recruiting ground for the Agema, to the Parthians, the Epilektoi were given the title and role of the Agema by Alexander Balas. They are best used where the decisive action will take place, either to force their way through enemy infantry, or to repulse the heavy cavalry of the other Greek states.



    Toxotai syriakoi (implanted)


    Kardouchoi Pantodapoi

    These Kurdish spearmen were provided by the client-kingdom of Media Atropatene. Antiochus III, after breaking Molon’s revolt, invaded Atropatene, who had declared itself fully autonomous, and established it as a client-kingdom once again. Being a client-kingdom, Atropatene was obliged to supply the Seleucids with manpower. The Kurdish soldiers supplied by Atropatene were levy spearmen with little training and poor arms. Armed with a basic spear, no armour and a large wicker sparabara shield, they can take on other levy and light troop and hold their own against light cavalry. They have poor moral and will be the first to break when the odds are stack against them since they have little commitment to the Seleucid cause. But they are cheap, expendable units, a means for a strategos to preserve and not bleed out his Seleucid troops proper.

  2.  Along the north-western coast of the Mediterranean Sea between Spain and Italy lies the ancient city of Massilia (modern Marseilles). Originally founded in 600 BCE by Ionian Greeks from Phocaea, the city would one day challenge the might of Carthage (defeating them in both the 5th and 6th centuries BCE) and dominate the region, establishing a number of colonies in southern Gaul during the 3rd and 4th centuries BCE. But i dont know about leaders or warriors. The siege of Massilia (March-September 49 BC) was an early victory for Caesar during the Great Roman Civil War, largely won by his subordinates while Caesar himself campaigned in Spain. Carthagain founded a colony there before the Roman defeated them. Massilia has a golden lion on blue background in Rome 2. Idk how did sign it in real.

  3. Hi:

    Syracuse: Syracuse was orginally greek colony on sicily founded by Corinth in 734 BEC.  The city enjoyed a period of expansion and prosperity under the tyrant Gelon in the 5th century BCE, survived a two year siege by Athenian forces from 415 to 413 BCE, and again prospered under the tyrant Dionysius in the 4th century BCE when the city controlled much of Sicily and large portions of southern Italy. Achimedes lived there. He was a greek mathematicain, engineer, physicist, inventor and astronomer, but not a leader. The romans was the main enemies and they did try siege the city 214 - 212 BEC. Achimedes invented much war machines to protect Syracus. His inventors was the claw of achimedes (capture ships near the city wall) and the heat ray (sunbeams was focused on a same point and torch anything). Roman legions did killl Archimedes. Syracus was trade with lot of colonies arround mediterranean (Carthagain and Greeks). Carthagain and Syracus was build the main allies. But i dont know if the banner of Syracus was appear today.


    Deinomenids (485–465)

    Thrasybulus was deposed in 465 and Syracuse had a republican government for the next sixty years. This period is usually known as the Second Democracy (465-405). The extent to which Syracuse was a democracy in the same sense as Athens during this period is debated.

    Dionysii (405–344)

    Timoleon (345–337)

    Timoleon revived a republican form of government in Syracuse, which continued after his death. This period is usually known as the Third Democracy (337-317). The name is misleading; for at least some of the period Syracuse was run as an oligarchy.

    Agathocles (317–289)

    Numismatic evidence suggests that republican government may have existed for a few years between the death of Agathokles and Hicetas' assumption of power; this is sometimes referred to as the Fourth Democracy (289-287?). Nothing is known about it.

    Interregnum (289–276)

    Hieronids (275–214)

  4. Hi there, 

    I play the ptolemies in the most matches and i notice a quite possibly bug.

    If is staying a catapult in the aura of Cleopatra it doesn´t shoot faster. There are a modification (Default shoottime: 5 > 4 sec) in unit display, but the Lithobolos shoots like before.


    Thx to notice my comment.
