This patch:

  • changes the weapon of cart and gaul infantry swordmen to (Celtic) csword, because all other Celtic swordsmen (cavalry, champions, heroes, ptol mercenaries) use it already and the spatha is a Roman cavalry sword;
  • changes the weapon of athen cavalry swordsmen to falcata (kopis/makhaira), a chopping sword, because ancient sources (e.g. Xenophon) emphasize cavalry used that, not a xiphos (similar to gladius or akinakes), a short stabbing sword, unsuitable for horsemen
Test Plan

Ought to be unproblematic.

Separatedly, someone with more knowledge and experience of the art/ files should correct the following:

  • "akin" [sic] into "akinakes"
  • "gladus" [sic] into "gladius"
  • "pillum" [sic] into "pilum"
  • "tessalian" [sic] into "thessalian"

(involves file moves etc.).
