Historically, the Machimoi were a caste of low-ranked native Egyptian warriors which served to the Ptolemaic kingdom. The Ptolemaic rulers mainly relied on Greek settlers to provide the core of their army, but soon enough there was a manpower shortage. The answer to this problem were the Machimoi who were levied en masse and trained to fight in Hellenistic fashion.
