Details

This pack contains eight Ligurian Spearmen. 

The Ligurians, or Ligures as they were called in ancient sources, were a pre-Indo-European people, perhaps a collection of peoples of varying origins, who gave their name to Liguria, a region of north-western Italy.

In ancient times, all the tribes living from the mouth of the Arno River in present-day northwestern Italy, along coastal southern France, to the mouth of the Ebro River in present-day northeastern spain and on the island of Corsica were called Ligurians. They spoke the old Ligurian language which is generally believed to have been an Indo-European language with both Italic and particularly strong Celtic influences.
