Hello everyone,
Please, I am looking for a rule specifically for the ancients but dating from before 1976, you don't know and you know where to find it? .Thanks.

Thank you all, it's not for collecting, but I find that the game systems before 1976 are more interesting because they are more outdated, etc… If you know of any others, please indicate it.

"Ancient Warfare" by Arnold Hendrick, published by Milgamex is copyrighted 1975. Mechanics are innovative.
