The sagittarii syrorum are some of the best archers available. They are equipped with composite bows, allowing them to hit targets at greater distances and with more power, and they are also well-armoured. As a consequence, they are more expensive than most other archers.


Historically, the sagittarii syrorum came from Syria, an area with strong archery traditions. Once the Romans could access these eastern archers, they recruited them in large numbers.


The Sagittarii Syrorum are trained in batch with other Syrian mercenaries. Each batch provides 4 Sagittarii Syrorum.
