Professional soldiers equipped with pikes and protected by heavy armour. Good defence against cavalry.
Menaulatoi are commoners of the wealthier sort who've been levied into local militias to defend their settlement or bulk up field armies. Given some training, equipped with a pike and heavy armour, these soldiers are one of the toughest companies available. Able to present rows of sharp points to charging cavalry, this company can take punishment and dish it out.
