war tactics 


The Caetrati infantry were Iberian warriors who fought as light infantry, harassing the enemy before engaging in hand-to-hand combat. Although they used their great mobility and knowledge of the terrain to keep out of the reach of superior enemies, they often gave surprises to units that were not normally vulnerable to the attack of this type of troops.

His equipment was the small round shield or caetra, several javelins and the falcata. Normally they were placed at the forefront along with slingers of Balearic Islands to confront the enemy peltastas

The caetra, describes the small round shield of the skirmisher as opposed to the heavier and longer scutum of the main battle line warriors. In truth, however, the difference wasn't so defined. The Spanish excelled in guerilla tactics, using the difficult terrain of their homeland to good effect, executing swift sharp raids upon the unsuspecting Roman legions. This kind of warfare was new to the Romans and they learned quickly. The experience against the Spanish tribes was responsible for a number of martial reforms within the Republic in order to defeat this new enemy and Rome was forced to utilise every method available to them, in order to subdue these ferocious hardened warriors.

Is more related by shield than the faction  likevthe  Scutarii= Scutum where modern term Spanish become "Escudo"(shield)
