I'm nearing completion of my Polybian Roman army, and before I play a game
with them, I wanted to clarify the support rule.

The section of the rulebook that explains support, states that Blade
elements can offer support to other Blades in certain situations.

Assuming the Blades are in a line 6 elements long, can the unengaged Blade
units offer support to other Blades elements that they are beside?

Essentially I'm trying to figure out if Blades can support Blades that they
are next to or if they have to be behind to gain the +1.

Blades can give overlaps to friendly Blades. This is not support, it gives
the opponent a -1.

SpSp
BdBdBd

In the above situation, the far right Bd gives the right Sp a -1 when the
middle Bd fights it.

Here one Ps can support 3 Bd.

BdBdBd
__Ps__
the Ps gives a +1 to all Bd if they are fighting mounted.

I did mis-read the support paragraph, thanks for clearing it up.

Now, I have a question about the example you posted about Psiloi supporting
against mounted attacks. The following is the diagram you posted:

BdBdBd
__Ps__

Does the diagram assume more than one element of Psiloi or can a single
element of Psiloi support 3 elements of blade as in the example?

going, cover flanks or support vs mounted. Depends if you have a mounted
enemy but then you must make the choice.
