 Aelianus Tacticus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Aelian's military treatise, Taktike Theoria, is dedicated to Hadrian, though this is probably a mistake for Trajan, and the date AD 106 has been assigned to it.
The Macedonian phalanx of Aelian had many points of resemblance to the solid masses of pikemen and the squadrons of cavalry of the Spanish and Dutch systems, and the translations made in the 16th century formed the groundwork of numerous books on drill and tactics.
Moreover, his works, with those of Xenophon, Polybius, Aeneas Tacticus and Arrian, were minutely studied by every soldier of the 16th and 17th centuries who wished to be master of his profession.

Among the Greeks, only the Spartans are known to have marched in step and to have practiced deployment from march formation to battle line.
We know more about Macedonian drill, thanks to a brief text by an otherwise unknown author, Aelianus Tacticus, who wrote in the second century a.d.
He tells us that Alexander's foot soldiers were drilled to obey conventional "words of command," allowing them to move about the battlefield in different formations while keeping their spears in diverse positions, all according to the will of their officers.

 OLP Bulletin - Winter 1998 - Vol 19 #2
He cited examples of government intervention and concluded that every new law creates more crimes and potential for corruption.
He quoted Aelianus Tacticus in 2nd Century Rome as saying, "The more corrupt the state, the more laws it has."
The scope of government expands in response to demands by special interests -- what McQuade calls "the indignation industry." Governments and their client groups then vigorously deny scientific and economic evidence that questions the validity of the interventions.
