Carthaginian Allies: Spanish Scutarri

The Spanish contingent in early Punic War Carthaginian armies was quite small, but as the Spanish province grew so too did the numbers of Spanish troops in Carthaginian service, though their quality varied considerably. Nevertheless they were an important part of the armies of their masters.
The Spanish infantry with the large oval shield are scutarii, heavy infantry named after their shield, who made up the bulk of the Spaniards.
