    Default Rise of Persia 3.0 |PREVIEW| Oataritai Roster



    Oataritai or Autariatae were an ancient people of the northern Balkan who eventually became the most powerful Illyrian tribe.According to Greek mythology Autariate have a progenitor,Autarieus son of Illyrius.

    Oataritai resident on the north borders of Greek mainland.Their communities unified into a single political entity during the late 6th century BC and began to expand eastward.They defeat Ardiaei and their expansion to every point of cardinal enable them to achieve hegemonic control over one part of Balkanian Peninsula.Autariate rely on their heavy swordsmen and their well-defended Hoplites whose armour is imported from Greece.

    Oataritai have a well organised war machine and a boundless ambition for dominion.They just need the man who can handle their temperament and lead them to the tribal greatness.

    Hobetarėt (Illyrian Slingers) UNIT MADE BY THE BATTLE FOR HELLAS: RISING OF MACEDONIA TEAM
    In the deep woods of the Illyrian terrain, the sling has proven to be a valuable weapon. Since it does not rely on penetration power, but on the energy of the bullet, it is more useful against heavy bronze armor like the Greeks wear and the wicker shields, which can stop arrows. For that reason, the slingers are a worthy supplement of the Illyrian warriors in battle, although the use of the sling is more difficult than that of a javelin. The lack of shafted weapons makes these warriors even more nimble, but also less competent in close combat.


    Luftim (Illyrian Javelinmen) UNIT MADE BY THE BATTLE FOR HELLAS: RISING OF MACEDONIA TEAM
    These Luftim are javelin skirmishers drawn from the unruly tribes of Illyria in the western Balkans. Together with their javelins, they are armed with a short sword or an axe, coupled with their innate aggression and mobility in rough terrain, makes them useful in close engagements with light troops, and for ambushes. However, the lack of any other armour means that once their javelins are spent, they are best kept away from heavier enemy troops, especially cavalry.

    Illyrians are notorious as pirates of the Adriatic. Their tribes, use small boats and ambush to offset any quality or quantity of troops stacked against them. They were very succesful. Agathokles of Sicily organised colonising expeditions in the Northern Adriatic, with stopping Illyrian piracy as a stated goal. Later it got worse. In fact Romani first expanded across the Adriatic, as an attempt to stamp off their acts of piracy.

    Sulmues (Illyrian Raiders) UNIT MADE BY THE BATTLE FOR HELLAS: RISING OF MACEDONIA TEAM
    hese men when not using their boats to plunder enemy coasts or shipping, are on the lookout for easy pickings, be it from the enemies that surround them or other Illyrian tribes in their vincinity. Armed with a single handed axe, and a rope that they use when they assault enemy ships, to either grab them using hooks, or tie up their slaves after the fact. Rowdy and fierce against unarmed civillians, they tend to flee when armed enemies arrive. Brilliant in ambush and cunning in deceit, they can fill the ranks, but not quite hold them.

    The Illyrians were a people that inhabited the northern part of modern day Albania and were bordered in the south by the Greeks of Epirus and Aitolia, and in the east by the Macedon kingdom and the Thessalians. Thus, they had to adapt their warfare to fight these enemies, a task they became frighteningly good at. By the time of Philip of Macedon, they had carved out a fairly large kingdom at the expense of Macedonians and Epirots.

    Kalorėsi (Illyrian Cavalry) UNIT MADE BY THE BATTLE FOR HELLAS: RISING OF MACEDONIA TEAM
    The Illyrian cavalry consists of fast moving horsemen armed with axes and javelins. They are wearing no armour but they are protected by carrying their large native round shields and Hellenic influenced helmets. They are best used as a hit-and-run force and they are excellent for breaking up skirmishers, attacking lighter infantry such as missile troops as well as light cavalry and pursuing already broken enemies to prevent them rallying and rejoining a battle.

    Illyrians acted as mercenaries on several occasions whether on the side of the Greeks or the Macedonians. Perdiccas II of Macedon had hired Illyrian mercenaries in the 5th century BC but they betrayed him, allying with his enemy, Arrhabaeus of Lyncus. In another incident, Lysimachus killed all of his 5,000 Illyrian mercenaries (of the Oataritai tribe) to the last man, because he was convinced that they would join the enemy.

    Enchelei Kalorėsi (Enchelean Cavalry) UNIT MADE BY THE BATTLE FOR HELLAS: RISING OF MACEDONIA TEAM
    The Enchelean cavalry consists of fast moving horsemen armed with spears and swords. They wear few armour but they are protecyed by carrying their large native shields and Hellenic influenced helmets. They are best used as a hit-and-run force and they are excellent for breaking up skirmishers, attacking lighter infantry such as missile troops as well as light cavalry and pursuing already broken enemies to prevent them rallying and rejoining a battle.

    In southern Illyria organized states were formed earlier than in other areas of Illyria. The oldest known state which can be discussed about from ancient sources is that of the Enchelei. The height of the Enchelean Kingdom was from the 8th-7th centuries BC, but the kingdom fell from dominant power around the 6th century BC. The Enchelei were often at war with the northern Greeks. From written sources from Greek writers such as Herodotus, the Enchelei army is even recorded attacking the temple of Delphi and even ancient Thebes. After conquests of the Encheleans by Philip of Macedon in 357 BC, some Dassaretae settled in the area of Lynkestis.

    Agrianės Kėmbėsori (Agrianian Peltasts) UNIT MADE BY THE HEGEMONIA CITY STATES TEAM
    Agrianian Peltats live in the mountainous region north of Paionia. They are the best light infantry available to the warlord of the area. Armed with a bundle of deadly javelins and protected by a stout pelta shield, they are able to deploy rapidly, unleash a volley of javelins and withdraw to safety before a counterattack can be organised. For all their undoubted strengths, they are no match for more heavily armed troops in a melee and are best kept away from enemy cavalry units, although they can defend themselves in a close combat with their romphaia.

    They are first mentioned regarding the Megabazos' campaign in 511 BC. In 429 BC they were subject to the Odrysian kingdom and later, as early as 352 BC, they became allies of Philip of Macedonia. In the times of Philip II, the territory of the Agrianes was administered by Pella. They were crack javelin throwers and an elite unit of Alexander the Great's light infantry, who fought under the command of General Attalus.

    Kėmbėsori (Illyrian Infantry) UNIT MADE BY THE BATTLE FOR HELLAS: RISING OF MACEDONIA TEAM
    The Illyrians have often been a strong and independent foe of their Greek neighbors for some time. During this period, there has been a fair amount of cultural and military influence through the contact with the influental Greek colonies in the Illyrian coasts and through the contact with the Kingdom of Macedon as well. The Illyrians have learned to fight in relatively ordered formations with swords, javelins and native Illyrian shields in order to break up the formations of their Greek enemy. This makes them a dangerous and versatile enemy, due to the fact that they carry an inordinate amount of light javelins and follow a literal shower of these javelins with a thunderous charge with swords. They are impetuous infantry wearing helmets imported from Hellas and other pieces of such Hellenic influenced equipement but can't be considered a heavy one since the lack of heavy armour. If they are used properly can become a key unit in the army of any general with enough gold to afford them.

    Instances of Illyrians engaged in armed conflict occurred in Greek mythology and specifically in the legend of Cadmus and Harmonia, where Cadmus led the Illyrian Encheleans in a victorious campaign against the Illyrians after a divine advice from the Oracle. If the legend is true this war would have occurred around 2000 BC, the time when Cadmus has been claimed to have lived.

    Kalorės (Oataritai Cavalry) UNIT MADE BY THE BATTLE FOR HELLAS: RISING OF MACEDONIA TEAM
    The Oataritai field a medium cavalry that has surprising tenacity on the battlefield. Armed with spears and swords, they are ideal for riding down routing infantry and attacking the flanks of vulnerable infantry. While not quite as useful as some cavalry, they have a definite presence as a somewhat inexpensive all-purpose melee cavalry.

    Illyrian tribes were reluctant to help each other in times of war and even fought amongst each other and they sometimes allied with the neighboring Macedonians and Greeks. These conflicts happened because of land, pastures and areas of natural substances such as iron and salt.

    Kėmbėsorisė Fisnik (Oataritai Noble Infantry) UNIT MADE BY THE BATTLE FOR HELLAS: RISING OF MACEDONIA TEAM
    The Oataritai nobility had access to breastplates and greaves whilst the bulk of the army did not. The kings did not resemble the rest of the army and are the only ones with full body protection which is a rarity. Illyrian kings and rulers wear bronze torques around their necks and were heavily armored in antithesis to the bulk of their armies. A number of weapons and armaments are imported from Greece, including helmets. Armaments are mostly made of bronze. Another form of body armor is a bronze pectoral (that may have protected part of the back as well). It is more like a disc "breastplate" of 10 cm in diameter. Local greaves made of bronze are strapped on the legs. Metal riveted belts are used as well.

    The Oataritai (or most commonly known as Autariatae) communities unified into a single political entity during the late 6th century BC. They began to expand eastward into territories controlled by the Triballi. Moreover, they expanded southward where they defeated the Ouardiaei (Ardiaei), their old rivals, in struggles for control over pastures and salty springs. Activities of the Autariatae at the turn of the 6th and 5th centuries BC profoundly influenced the peoples who were directly affected by their expansion. The Ouardiaei were moved toward the coasts and the Triballi to the east.

    A standard practice of the Oataritai entailed killing their weak and wounded. This was meant to prevent meek individuals from falling into the hands of enemy tribes. They established a continuous tradition of manufacturing metal and ceramic products. Artifacts consisting of metal sheets with luxurious golden and silver belts of Mramorac type indicate the complexity of this tradition. The Oataritai are a classic example of a highland people who also show all the characteristics of a highland mentality. Case in point, the Oataritai have strongly maintained their burial customs of burning the dead in tumuli, which have not changed until the end of the Glasinac culture.

    The religious life of the Oataritai was influenced by both their ancestor cult and the cult of their solar god. One can find the numerous evidences of the solar cult throughout the territories once controlled by the Oataritai. The economy of the Oataritai was based on cattle breeding, metalwork, handicraft and trade. Because of its need for Greek and Italic goods, this Illyrian tribe was one of the biggest trade partners of the western and central Balkans to both Greek and Italic traders between the 7th and 6th centuries BC.
