Meaning "javelineers". Akontistai are nothing more than peasants armed by the local ruler. They form the basic infantry unit of each province. Their primary weapon is a handful of light hunting javelins, but they are also armed with a wooden buckler and a small axe for when they are forced to engage in close combat.
