Following the conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar, the main source for Roman Cavalry becomes Celtic. Thus, many of the Roman cavalry equipment have Celtic influence. Our range would be incomplete if we do not include the ubiquitous oval Celtic cavalry shield among our sets.
The Cohors Equitata contains both infantry and cavalry elements and is especially handy for detached missions such as outpost defence and raids. From the pay records, it seems that the mounted soldiers in a cohors equitata are ranked below that of an Ala cavalryman. There is some speculation that these mounted soldiers are more in the nature of dragoons rather than battle shock cavalry. We decided to name this set as Mounted Auxiliaries rather than Cavalry. We will be doing a set of auxiliary infantry with matching shield emblem for those collectors who wished to have both elements of a full cohors equitata.
