Iberian Warriors

Iberian Warriors

Historical illustration of a couple of Iberian warriors around the 3rd century BC.

Iberian warriors wore little or no armor as they preferred to have greater mobility on the battlefield.

The warrior on the right carries a small circular shield called Caetra and an emblematic Falcata while his companion carries a heavy shield (Scutum) and is armed by a Gladis Hispalensis, later adopted by the Roman legions.
