Phalanx warfare: Closing of the ranks
For terminology in the Othismos debate, I'm tracking that there is the Orthodox side, who believe in the rugby scrimmage being the primary tactic. Then there is the Heresy side, who believe spear fencing was the primary tactic. Paul, what can you name your theory, since it appears to be a mix of both? Hybrid?

Othismos deserves its own thread. I know its been done to death in this forum already in the past, but just to clarify things and provide some new evidence, tests, theories. And I'd really like to see an edited and narrated video of these experiments that were conducted at Marathon.
