AUC25 Rhaetian Spearmen (15mm)
This pack contains eight Rhaetian Spearmen.
Rhaetian foot soldiers were prized as mercenaries because of their proficiency with a heavy iron throwing spear called a gaesum. Rhaetians later appeared in great number in the horse guard under Antoninus Pius. Emperor Hadrian must have also thought highly of their skill with the heavy gaesum spear because he raised a special one thousand strong Cohors Gaesatorum.
