When CA made these factions playable, I hope they carry their right weapons...

Thrace should have Rhomphaia,

Thracian Nobles should carry rhomphaia, look at their unit card...

"Used almost exclusively by the Thracians, As a weapon, the rhomphaia was feared because of the cutting power afforded to it by the polearm like design."

Dacia should carry Falx

Falxmen carried a rhomphalia in their unit cards instead of falx???; hope their falx is longer than what whey currently have...

"Trajan's column is a monument to the emperor’s conquest of Dacia. The massive base is covered with reliefs of trophies of Dacian weapons and includes several illustrations of the two-handed falx."

Illyria should carry Sica

Illyria has no unit carrying sica yet....

"The Romans regarded the sica as a distinctive Illyrian weapon"
