  1. It is very interesting to compare these armies. Both were well traiined, dedicated to war. Both were well armed and armoured, their weapons designed or adapted purely for their own style of combat. Both were eccelently cohesive, tough and loyal! Also, both used unit cohesion as their main weapon. Both used the strenght of the group, not the individual I think the Romans had an advantage of manoeverability over the phalanx of the greek style, and more officers, leading to clearer communication. Yet that far from home, the Romans would have not been fighting to save their homes and families, and passion is a strong power in inspiring men. I suspect that the outcome would have been somewhat similar, unless you account for the Romans superior organisation, leading to no mistakes (such as the not protecting the pass aqaquetly)
