These were Gladiatorial Archers. Normally seen as “ground Forces” in various battle “spectacles”, their dress varied as to their used. Normally, they wore Squamata (or Chain Mail-type) Armor. They used the same Arcus-style helmets that typical Roman Legion Archers wore as well. Unlike them, The Sagittarius used full length leg Greaves. They used the standard Recursive Bow as their primary weapon. They were sometimes paired with Essedarius (or Gladiator Charioteers) and even made into “Mounted Archers”, for specific Events. They were considered somewhat elite and often better fed and taken care of.
