Scythia was an ancient civilization in Rome: Total War. The Scythians are also known as the Sarmatians.
The Scythians lived on the plains near the Black Sea. They had a nomadic way of live and used many horses. The Scythian Virgins needed to kill a man before they could get married. The Scythians had female warriors. The Greek myths concerning the Amazons are likely based on these people. Scythian Horse Archers were hired by the Romans to serve as auxilleraries, mostly in Britannia. Because of this there were still some in Britannia, after these people were wiped out by invading Huns and others.
