Auxilia Funditores

A thrown rock can hurt. A hurled rock can kill.

Rome liked to have the best of everything. When it came to skirmishers 'funditores', Latin for 'slingers', were recruited to accompany its Legions on campaign as early as the Punic Wars of the 3rd century BC. The best slingers in the western Mediterranean came from the Balearic islands, where it is said that children had to 'sling for their dinners' - having to knock their bread from a wall at range before being permitted to eat by their parents. In the eastern Mediterranean, the rocky crags of islands such as Crete produced fine skirmishers, be they slingers, javelineers or archers. During Imperial Rome's almost constant wars against the eastern empires local skirmishers were drafted into fight, honouring the long-standing traditions of their inhospitable homelands and enabling the Romans to 'level the playing field' in terms of army structure and tactics.
