Great, simply great, Casca! I had exactly that picture in mind when I first saw the testudo post but I could not find it on the web... - but how do the legionaries at the front corners manage to handle their two <i> scuta</i> and a spear at the same time?!<br>

If you go to The Official Asterix Web Site and click on the English Celt drinking tea in the upper right corner, it will take you to the English version. <p><BR><p align=center><font color=gold><font size=2>

Not to mention that there are 5 shields and 6 spears in the front line.<br>

You don't understand Roman math.<br>
<br>
First convert V et VI to base-10. Then you look up the tangent of the angle for the third decimal place and divide by 8.<br>
<br>
Now if we plug the result into the Quadratic Formula (where 4ac equals the sum of your total soldiers in the <i> testudo</i>), you will see that V=VI! <p><BR><p align=center><font color=gold><font size=2>

At least the extra spear compensates for the missing <i> umbo</i>.<br>
