The hippikon (hip-pee-kon, Ancient Greek: ἱππεῖς, Greek: ιππικό) was not a unit, but in fact, a Greek term for cavalry in general. A regiment (thousand) of cavalry was commanded by an Epihipparch. This regiment would then be split into two units, led by two hipparchi or by hipparmostes (Spartans). Greek cavalry companies were led by tetrarchs. Mounted archer regiments called hippotoxotes also existed, but were rarely seen in combat due to an absence of efficent saddles to level the rider enough for accurate shots.
