12. Artillery

A selection of artillery and siege weapons. The largest and most effective was known as the onager (wild ass) because of its kick. Each century was allocated a mechanical arrow-shooter which was deployed in battle. (Illustrations by John Pittaway from Picture Reference Ancient Romans, Brockhampton Press 1970)
