Yeah thats what I sawDiokles said:Also I can confirm that your suspicions are correct about it being Imperial Rome as the guy falling off the horse is wearing Lorica Segmentata (Seek's favorite armour ) and the training shield is square shaped instead of ovular.
I think that's Camillian hastati, but I think this mod is set during the Polybian era of the Roman military. I'm not entirely sure. Might be the other way round with the names. I believe it's because at this (or a bit later) time a lot of history was recorded by Polybius who was a Greek historian. Hence historians refer to the Roman military at this time as the "Polybian".
