The first appendix is based on the A2 foldout table that accompanies the game, augmented by observations and data found here. Data has been reproduced here for ease of comparison between similar types of unit. Tribe (civilization) is shown R = Roman, B = Barbarian, E = Egyptian, and All. Health, stamina, speed, attack, defense, range attack, and range have been assigned numbers based on:

* 1 = Very low
* 2 = Low
* 3 = Medium
* 4 = High (long)
* 5 = Very high (very long)

Do not interpret these numbers as meaning anything other than the higher the number the better. For example, a "4" is not necessarily twice as 'good' as a "2", but "4" is better than "3". The number of people is the maximum number of troops per unit, or in the case of siege engines, the number required to operate the machine.
