Does anyone have an idea how to integrate the beautiful Barbarian miniatures into the 6-player scenario?

Why only in the 6 Player, as opposed to a 3-5 Player?

1. Speaking generally, many Ancient era games use Barbarians to invade around the periphery of the board, as if coming from the "fringes of civilization." Adding an action where a player can 'Raise Barbarians' on an outer province of another would be very useful, as most player garrison their border, rather than their inner provinces (except when initially taking them), so very few Barbarians could seriously disrupt them.

2. Using them as 'Rebels' would allow them to appear in other provinces as well.

Since the counter mix of units in Mare Nostrum is very limited, this would have to be balanced very carefully!
