A warlike people, the Scythians were particularly known for their equestrian skills, and their early use of composite bows shot from horseback. With great mobility, the Scythians could absorb the attacks of more cumbersome foot soldiers and cavalry, just retreating into the steppes. Such tactics wore down their enemies, making them easier to defeat. The Scythians were notoriously aggressive warriors. They "fought to live and lived to fight".

Parthian mounted archer employing the classic Parthian shot over the shoulder. This tactic has gone down in history as a perfect last statement while moving away from an adversary and lives on today in the form of a stinging remark while leaving a room said over the shoulder "a parting comment".
