Headword: *(/amippoi
Adler number: alpha,1601
Translated headword: horse-attached
Vetting Status: high
According to Isaeus[1] [this means] those campaigning with horses. But others say that certain horses are yoked together and someone drives them, mounted on one and leading the other alongside; and these are called horse-attached. But Thucydides and Xenophon make it clear that the horse-attached were infantrymen.[2] And perhaps those deployed together with the cavalry are scouts of some kind.
