Details

This pack contains eight Ligurian foot Commanders.

According to Plutarch, the Ligurians called themselves 'Ambrones', which could indicate a relationship with the Ambrones of northern Europe. Strabo tells us they were a different race to the Celts (by which he means Gauls), who inhabited the rest of the Alps, though they resembled them in their mode of life.

Lucan in his Pharsalia (c. 61 AD) described ancient Ligurian tribes as being long-haired and their hair a shade of auburn: '...Ligurian tribes, now shorn, in ancient days first of the long-haired nations, on whose necks once flowed the auburn locks in pride supreme.'
