Some of the best archers can be found amongst the many tribesmen who live in the wilds of the island of Shardim in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Being mostly a community of herders and raiders, it is thus not difficult to find men eager to train their bows on your foes as equally as they would upon their neighbours, and excel at putting them down. 

Even so, remember that these men are not true soldiers, so while they are proficient with bows, they don't march as fast as most light infantry, and they also don't carry the more powerful composite bows of the Indo-Iranian factions, such as the Sarmatians or the Parthians. Their main draw is in forming a cheap and reliable mass of missile infantry that can be raised at moment's notice for the field.
