The 3rd, or 'Elite', rank of the Egyptian Pikeman citizen-soldier. He wears a scale-reinforced linothorax for body armor and wears a Hellenistic variation of the Thracian helmet popular for this time period. His shield has various Hellenistic and Egyptian motifs emblazoned on it.

As with all pikemen, the range of his melee attack is longer than other melee infantry. His attack strength is not high, but his armor values are, making him a tough front-line unit that helps pin enemy infantry and acts as a great meat shield.
