Imperial Roman Camelry

  • 1800

Dromedarii were camel riding auxiliary forces recruited in the eastern, desert, provinces of the Roman empire.  The best-known unit was the "ala I ulpia dromedariorum milliaria" (The Ulpian Wing of Camel-riders, One Thousand strong), raised by the Emperor Trajan and stationed in Syria.  Roman 'mixed' auxiliary cohorts (cohortes equitatae) in the East often contained some dromedarii - about three dozen in the case of cohors XX palmyrenorum equitata stationed at Dura Europos in the early Third Century.  A few would be sent out on patrol with the infantry and cavalry.

This pack contains 3 random 28mm metal Camel Riders.
