Artistic rendering of a late 3rd century foot roman soldier. The helmet is a Niederbieber type, with cross-pattern reinforcing ridges on the top of the bowl, and cheek-guards which can be fastened together. The sword is a spatha (median blade length 900 mm), used by the cavalry only in the 1st/2nd c. Note the Lorica squamata and oval shield.
