Prokoursatores

Tagmatic Kavallarioi

Klibanophoroi

Skoutatoi

AKontistai

menavlatoi

Given this some thought as to what I would use for this period and have come up with the following.

Prokoursatores. Not a clue with this one

Tagmatic Kavallarioi.  For the 10th C. with them having the teardrop shield I would use Norman cavalry. However these horses are not armoured.

Klibanophoroi. I would use Late Roman Cataphracts. ALR09. These are fully armoured horses but the rider does not carry a shield. If you wanted them with shields I would use ASS06 Sassanid Late Armoured cavalry. Again however, these are only half armoured horses.

Skoutatoi. I would use Late Armoured Roman infantry. ALR03. With ALR05 to make up the archer section of the unit

AKontistai. Javelin men with a shield. I can only think of the Spanish Caetratii. ASP02

Menavlatoi. Not a clue with these.

So a bit vague in places I'm afraid.

Through the travail of the ages Midst the pomp and toil of war Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.
So as through a glass and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names but always me.
So forever in the future Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter But to die again once more.

That helps a bunch.  I should have left descriptions of the units for reference.  Those Byzantine names are so long and confusing.
