Eques (unmounted)

Eques, plural Equites

El eques era considerado un gladiador de tipo ligero. Estaba equipado con una manica tradicional (aunque en este modelo de Crusader es de metal) y yelmo cerrado. En las piernas usaba polainas o vendajes. De acuerdo a las numerosas representaciones que nos han llegado, los combates entre equites acababan a pie, donde el eques abandonaba la lanza y combatía con espada y escudo.

According to the many representations that have survived, fighting between equites ended on foot, where the eques left the spear and fought with sword and shield.
