Historically, the Thorakitai were a further improvement over the Thureophoroi. They were product of the Roman and Celtic influence over the Hellenistic armies during the late 3rd century BC. This type of infantry was not much widespread at first, but as the contacts with the Romans intensified they came to prominence.
