Interesting use of the magic symbols from the Tanit stelae on your armour:

Great pictures, Caturix! Sometime I would love to attend your reenactment of the Metaurus batle. Do you do it every year? Where?

Thank you Ben!

Yes, we do it every year, and actually it is on the riverside of the Metaurus itself, at Sterpeti, a fraction of the municipality of Montefelcino, the very place that the famous historian De Sanctis identified as the battlefield of the Metaurus battle:

Carthaginian Lonchophoros

Writing about the Libyan tribesmen, Strabo wrote: "they wear a goatskin on their shoulder, as protecion fo the chest" (XVII.3.7)
In the same line, he described the use of short lonche and small leather caetra shield.
Forthermore, Strabo describes Libyan tunic as woolen, ungirdled and laticlavia (with broad borders on the sides), and speaking of Mauri tribesmen, centuries later, Corippus still records an ungirdled tunic, without sleeves, and records the use of a band firmed with a knot on the forehead.

The red color was chosed from Silius Italicus, describing infantry "from Carthage" equipped with short spears and caetra shield and red tunic, while the blue for laticlavia stripes was chosed for the common use of indigofera tinctoria in North African berber tribes.

Another Carthaginian impression, based on a Punic stelae from Carthage and with a trilobate armor (whose presence, even if in a more elaborate nature, is attested in Carthaginan context).
The presence on the stelae of Pilos Helmet and italic Kopis-Machaira (akin to the Aleria finding), could be interpreted as evidence of a "Liby-phoenician" of Oscan (Bruttian) stock, as attested in tophet inscriptions (e.d. Bodmilqart son of Stenius, son of Accius/Achaios, son of Paccius the blacksmith - CIS5984, III-II)
