Mercenary Veneti Axemen

The Gallic way of battle loses none of its power in Italian hands.

The Veneti were an ancient Italic tribe who lived in northeastern Italy and some of the upper Adriatic regions, which Livy called their "corner". They were the only barbarian tribe in the region prior to the invasion of Gauls from beyond the Alps. The Veneti did not immediately come into conflict with the newcomers, unlike their more 'civilised' neighbours the Etruscans, instead coexisting peacefully. Polybius claims that the Veneti were heavily influenced by Gallic culture, and were seemingly identical to the Gauls except in their language. This Gallic influence did not mean the Veneti were warlike, however; instead, they preferred animal husbandry, fishing and trade over war, and used bronze coins as early as the 7th century BC. The Veneti used a strong breed of horse that were even requested by Dionysius of Syracuse for use in the Olympic Games. According to Livy, the Veneti were originally descended from Antenor of Troy, who led the 'Heneti' to northeastern Italy to found the city of Patavium.
