Mercenary Etruscan Archers

Good archers will prove their worth many times over, even in a single battle.

According to Rome's foundation myth, as recounted by Livy, the Etruscans attacked the Latins, leading to the former's defeat and a peace settlement which made the River Tiber the common boundary between them. Following Rome's founding, on the banks of the Tiber in 753BC, conflict between the Etruscans and Romans continued for another five centuries, both militarily and politically. Veii, Fidenae, Tarchuna and Clusium each fought and were defeated by on Rome multiple occasions. The last three kings of Rome were actually of Etruscan descent, a result of the post-war peace treaties between the two states. When the Gallic warbands first defeated the Roman army at the Battle of Allia, prior to the sacking of Rome, the Etruscans tried to capitalise on Rome's disarray, seizing the opportunity to capture Roman lands for themselves. They began by besieging Sutrium, a Roman ally. On the same day that Sutrium fell, the Roman dictator Marcus Furius Camillus marched on the inferior Etruscan forces, compelling them to surrender and offering to spare their lives.
