The Phalangitai Deuteroi are the most basic soldiers to fight in the pike phalanx. However, unlike other levies they have access to decent armour including a helmet, shield and sometimes a linothorax. Furthermore they are equipped with the long and deadly sarissa pike. While they are expensive for a levy unit, their superior armour and attack more than makes up for their price.


Historically, the Phalangitai Deuteroi were only levied in desperate situations, primarily to defend Macedon from foreign invaders such as the Galatians and Romans.


  • Phalangitai Deuteroi is English transcription of the Greek φαλαγγίται δεύτεροι which means "second phalangites".
