Galatia was a part of Asia Minor and Celtic in outlook, and these figures look quite Celt-like.

This set is basically nine dead men lying on the ground. All are naked or semi-naked or have cloaks hiding whatever clothing they may have. In one case the injury is quite evident - an amputated leg at the knee - but generally cause of death is not obvious. What is particularly striking about these men is that every single one has managed to hold on to his weapon, even in death. Also the man with the leg hacked off has managed to fall just centimetres from where is foot lies. It all seems rather unlikely.

With so many MIR sets being simply copies of other manufacturers there must be a similar suspicion about these, though we could not identify any. The sculpting is reasonable, and though some of the anatomy is very awkward the fact that they are dead can be used to explain limbs at odd angles and so on.
