"No others were superior to these in birth or wealth or reputation. They were also distinguished by the splendour of their armour and the slowness and good order of their march. They were spearmen who fought in a phalanx, Greek-style. They were dressed in white, a colour the Carthaginians associated with death, and were the only military unit allowed within the walls of the city"
''...the iron breat plates and the bronze helmets with which their persons were protected..."
"Those who stripped the bodies (of dead cathaginians from the sacred band) made very little account of bronze and iron; so abundant was silver, so abundant gold. And among the spoils, were a thousand breast- plates of superior workmanship and beauty"
Diodorus of Sicily.
