Maniple (meaning handful) was a tactical unit formation. It was also the name of the military insignia carried by such unit. Attached to a legion were also a number of very light skirmishers called velites armed with javelins drawn from the poorer sections of Roman society, a handful of Equestrian cavalry, auxiliaries (mostly cavalry) drawn from Rome's Italian allies (socii) and a large number of non-combatants.

I love the gesture of the open hands!
