Auxilia Sagittarii

Even the longest sarissa cannot stop an arrow at 100 metres.

From the very beginnings of its Empire, during the time of the Principate, Rome had fielded 'sagittarii' - archers - drawn from its subject peoples as auxiliaries to the Legions. As the centuries wore on, following several sets of reforms, almost all of them were folded into the Roman army proper. In the Western Empire, archers were used in much smaller numbers than other classes of skirmisher, however, possibly due to the composite bows with which they fought; the glue used tended to dissolve in wet western climes and the wood would warp, rendering the weapon entirely useless. It was a much more common sight for units of sagittarii to be attached to Eastern Roman armies as cavalry, where they followed their region' ancient traditions of skirmishing from horseback.
