    Assuming you're talking about the Bosporan Logades, Hellenised natives of the region, plus some local Greeks too.

    Some of those Greeks would have also intermarried with the locals and Iranian-speaking natives of the Crimea and northern Black Sea region. They were an interesting-looking Caucasian people. For instance, the Roman-era Bosporan ruler and Roman client Tiberius Julius Sauromates II (d. 210 AD), showing off his curly blond locks:

    That's not exactly a Roman hairdo he's sporting there (looks more like MacGyver from the 1980s, lol), but obviously his bust and gaze has the typical contemporary Greco-Roman look. His eyes even remind one a little of Marcus Aurelius, his contemporary patron.

    yes i was talking about them. Now that I think of it what ethnicity will the Baktrian Hetairoi-equivalent have? Now that the old Baktrion Agema turned Indo-Greek will they also be Indo-Greek or will they be Greeks only?

    They'll be Greeks. They filled all the elite positions in Baktrian society, especially the cavalry.

    Quintus, then the native Baktrian nobility weren't considered eligible as Companions?

    I don't think so, no. They weren't Makedonian, after all.

    There are entries on the Unit List for Dahan Nobles, Parthian Nobles and Grivpanar. Though the last is just an entry, not a concept.

    Ah ok. Are the Parthian Nobles cataphracts with bows? I know we aren‘t supossed to base units off of eb1 but im eb 1 dahan nobles are heavy cav with bows and noble cataphracts are lancers. Or are bow cataphracts more of an anachronistic inclusion in thos timeframe?

    Neither are cataphracts, both are more regular heavy cavalry (their horses may have some barding, but not full).

    The real issue is that the engine only allows us 2 weapons, when in reality these men would have many (bows, lances, maces, swords, possibly javelins too).

    Are the Bosporan Logades in 2.3a?
    Democracy is beautiful in theory; in practice it is a fallacy.

    There are more regional units for Anatolia/Armenia still to come, which will impact Pontos (and Hayastan).
