I must concede that apparently ‘not a one’ is used; I’m not sure even for the poetry reason to create a jarring effect it is appropriate here, if the mercenaries are not surprised that no one thanks them.

The ‘a’ just seems to be a waste of a syllable, when it could be shorted to just ‘not one’ or emphasized with ‘not a single one’.
