Mercenary Veneti Horsemen

The stronger the horse, the bigger the advantage its rider enjoys.

The Veneti were considered to be excellent horse-breeders widely known for producing the strongest and fasters mares in ancient Italy. Venetic horses were greatly sought-after by the Greeks; they famously won the Olympic Games for Leon of Sparta in 440BC. Dionysius of Syracuse wanted to repeat this success himself, buying Venetian horses for a four-horse chariot race during the Olympic Games in 388BC. Diodorus of Sicily reported that several four-horse teams raced for Syracuse, and were far superior to the other contenders due to their swiftness. In Veneti society, Horses played an important role, as attested to by the horse cemeteries found around the ancient cities of Patavium, Altinum and Atria. Wild horses living on the slopes of the Alps were incorporated into domestic herds by the able Veneti horse-breeders, which enabled them to cultivate their stables and in turn, their reputation and social status. Several Venetic inscriptions mention the word 'ekuperatis', which means 'master of the horse' and perhaps refers to commerce, warfare, nobility, or all of the above.
