    Caltrop. Hand Weapon. The "crow's foot" was first used in 4th century B.C. It consisted of four or more sharp iron spikes that were thrown in front of a horse's hooves or infantrymen's feet.

    Many thanks to Bjornlo, and Righteous Fist. :D :D

    Interesting. I'm assuming it would be used like an ancient land mine (immobile, high defensive bombard?)

    @Righteous Fist--Which "Alexander the Great Scenario" do you refer to?

    Roman Legion has made myriad solid contributions since joining. I hope he will ignore that remark and give it the attention it deserves.
