Roman siege engines were, for the most part, adapted from Hellenistic siege technology. Relatively small efforts were made to develop the technology; however, the Romans brought an unrelentingly aggressive style to siege warfare that brought them repeated success. Up to the 1st century BC the Romans utilized siege weapons only as required and relied for the most part on ladders, towers and rams to assault a fortified town. Ballistae were also employed, but held no permanent place within a legion's roster, until later in the Republic, and were used sparingly.Julius Caesar took great interest in the integration of advanced siege engines, organizing their use for optimal battlefield efficiency.

  • Les engins de siège des armées romaines étaient, pour la plupart, dérivés des techniques de siège grecques. Relativement peu d’efforts ont été accomplis pour faire évoluer la technologie, mais les Romains ont développé sans relâche un style agressif de guerre de siège. Jules César apporta beaucoup de soins à intégrer les progrès des engins de siège et entreprit d'organiser leur utilisation pour une efficacité optimale sur le champ de bataille.
  • Le armi da assedio d'epoca romana (in latino apparata oppugnandarum urbium) rappresentarono una componente fondamentale nell'organizzazione dell'esercito romano. Si trattava di tutta una serie di macchine adatte a scardinare o a superare le mura delle città nemiche degli assediati, oltre ad una serie di congegni di artiglieria, in parte ereditati dai Greci della vicina Magna Grecia.
  • De Romeinse belegeringswapens bestonden uit een verscheidenheid aan machines en constructies om de muren van belegerde steden en vestingen te veroveren. De belangrijkste belegeringswapens waren de machines waarmee de muren werden beklommen of gesloopt. Daarnaast hadden de Romeinen de beschikking over verschillende artilleriewapens en allerlei verdedigingswerken, pantserconstructies en -voertuigen om de legionairs tegen vijandige projectielen en te hulp komende ontzettingstroepen te beschermen.
  • 古罗马攻城器械是直接师承自古希腊的科技,并为他们带来一次又一次的胜利。而凯撒大帝更是将它的技术含量推到极端,为罗马帝国扩张疆土给予极大的帮助。当时主要的攻城器械为弩、投石车、梯子、攻城塔、攻城槌及地道等工具。
