    Why are all the modern depictions of it as a floppy cap? How sturdy would it have been?

    Re: Iberian Linen armor

    So is that floppy cap looking thing often depicted (like the Iberi milites in EB1 and the Panoply reform units in EB2) a helmet? Is it organic or metal with a covering over it? Or is of the Osuna...

    That's true, but it's also the cost as well. Since upkeep and cost are tied together, the initial price for them is also high. I think the good old Uassoi cost 720 and have an upkeep of 135, while...
