Ancient fighting unit encyclopedia/dictionary?
Was listening to a recent AW Magazine podcast and one of the gents had a great description of the Hypaspists/Silver Shields and it got me thinking (A dangerous prospect I know). I set about searching Google and Amazon and have thus far turned up nothing. I am curious if the readership here knows of/is aware of an Ancient Fighting Unit dictionary or encyclopedia? 

At this point, I would take anything, doesn't have to be greatly illustrated. Was just thinking of something along the lines of the name of the units/unit types in alphabetical order with a brief description of what they were equipped with, who they fought for etc. 

I realize that this too may be rather ambitious given that many things like equipment etc are agreed upon. Any help is appreciated. TIA and Best, Jonathan
