By the oval shape of the shields, am I to assume that these are meant to be legionaries of the Praetorian Guard?

No, as far as I know the oval shield was used quite extensively at certain periods - I'm not an expert though, mainly receiving guidance from the article author.

No they are ordinary legionaries.This shape of shield was used by common legionaries(together with other shapes-including rectangular so popular in pop culture)at this time.Shape of Republican shield that Praetorians possibly used for some time longer than legionaries was different from this shape.

I see. Of course, the oval shield that the Praetorians are depicted as using in that one stone relief could just as likely be ceremonial.

Gorgeous detailing. But how they throw pilums in such close formation?

Very carefully.

Thanks - these pilums and shields are to receive a charge (cavalry in this case) and defend against missiles - in these formations, the infantry further back would throw javelins instead, with archer support at the rear.
