    I noticed this unit on EB homepage, but could not recognize what it is, neither found it in Recruitment viewer. It looks like a hellenistic pikemen, well armored, greaves on both legs.

    Any ideas?

    Could be a dismounted Xystophoros Hippeus or similar(tessalian cav, Ptolemaic heavy cav...)

    Yes, it's a Hippeis Thessalikoi or Hippeis Xystophoroi. The Ptolemean equivalent had a different skin, as I recall, but they do use the same model.

    I think the helmet is different for Thessalian cavalry. It must be a Xystophoros.
