Just a suggestion : how about replacing Light Javelin Horse with Light Horse Archers (Hippotoxotai, ἱπποτοξόται, from hippo- mounted, and toxotai, archers) in Athenian 460 BC - 381 BC :

1) About the Athenian Hippotoxotai:

For example, Thucydides, History of the Peloponnesian War, 2.13.8 : "The Athenian cavalry, so Pericles pointed out, numbered twelve hundred, including mounted archers".

2) About the Athenian Prodromoi :

Thanks Athos, this is very interesting.

@Paul : btw there seems to be an interesting article about the Hippotoxotai in the Brill’s New Pauly (a today's encyclopaedia with high academic standards), here.

(unfortunately (but logically) the access to this encyclopaedia is charged. Only the beginning of the article is visible.)
