Frage:
Schleuderer/altes Rom  
von melli66 (DE), 2016-02-19, 10:13  like dislike  Spam?  
Weiß vielleicht jemand wie man eine Person bezeichnet, die professionell mit einer Steinschleuder umgehen kann?
Hurler oder slingshooter wird es wohl nicht sein...

Slinger  #834671

The sling is mentioned by Homer[8] and by other Greek authors. Xenophon in his history of the retreat of the Ten Thousand, 401 BC, relates that the Greeks suffered severely from the slingers in the army of Artaxerxes II of Persia, while they themselves had neither cavalry nor slingers, and were unable to reach the enemy with their arrows and javelins.

I don't know that there is a specific word, besides something like catapult operator.  #834674

But I did find this http://hubpages.com/education/Roman-Weaponry-Ancient-Artillery-Sieg... and http://www.mywizards.com/catapults/onager/ which both have master artilleryman in a translation of a text from the 4th century, and as catapults are classed as artillery weapons, perhaps artilleryman would work.

Edit: I've just seen the other answer, and I was imagining a catapult machine (for want of a better word) rather than an 'individual' catapult, so it might depend on what you are after :-)

Thank you, Andi!  #834675

Apart from the personal slingshots, there were also heavy catapults (called onagers), which were an early form of artillery.

Apparently, Katapult can be used for both, a slingshot and a catapult. I wonder whether themauthor was aware of this...

According to the first link given by Proteus, "Plänkler" = "skirmisher".
I think that a lot of writers don't really know what they are talking about. (Nor do I, in this field.)

well, I referred back to AndiBar's post which sounded logical but I'm out of my depth here as well
