Fabian Soldiers

.

A complimentary phrase for Roman soldiers, the bravest of the brave.

“Quem [band of trained soldiers] quidem sic omni disciplina militari [Iphicrătês] erudivit, ut quemadmŏdum quondam ‘Fabiāni milĭtesʹ Romani appellati sunt, sic ‘Iphicratensesʹ apud Græcos in summa laude fuérint.”—Nepos: Iphicrates, ii.
