Roman relief legionaries
If you want to establish a flair of Roman triumphal architecture in your study or living room, then installing replicas of Roman legionary reliefs is just what you need! Detailed replicas of found and exhibited reliefs from times of Roman rule are ideal ways to make the decoration of your living and working space more individual and interesting than it would be possible with posters, for example.
Legionaries in battle
Legionary relief shows the image of two Roman legionaries of the Flavian period in forward movement. The two legionnaires are wearing the Lorica Segmentata track armor and Weisenau-type clasp helmets typical of the first century AD. In addition to a gladius, the front legionary also carries the classic tower shield, the so-called scutum, into battle, while the rear legionary carries a pilum. It is this particularly striking uniform and armament, which can still be easily assigned by most people today, that represents the power and greatness of the Imperium Romanum in an unparalleled way. The replica of the legionary relief can be easily attached to walls thanks to the hanging on the back.

The Mainz Original
The original legionary relief, which was the inspiration for the offered replica, was found as part of a column base near Mainz. In Roman antiquity, Mainz was one of the most important legionary sites on the turbulent Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes and also one of the largest military bases in Western Europe. The original legionary relief, made of limestone, is now on display in the Mainz State Museum.
Tip for interested visitors
A legionary relief looks especially impressive if you combine it with other reliefs or objects of antiquity. Create a highly interesting themed wall or draw attention to certain areas of your bookcase by means of such a relief.
