Punic Wars Roman

Two more units of my Punic Wars project.....

This is a unit of Triarii, the most senior legionaries in the army.  In this period they were armed with thrusting spear not pilum.

The cavalry or Equestrians, a small body of mounted men recruited from the richest families in Rome.  each legion normally had only one unit of Equestrians.
