An extremely interesting and captivating theme for children - already from primary school's age - the history about the life and acting of humans in the ancient Roman Empire. Especial fascination radiates from the size of the military and the variety of the equipment of the Roman legion. With that the important figure of a signifier - because of his extraordinary uniform - is in the center of the kids' attention. The Roman army was a important power support of that time. The military impressed with the best equipment and discipline. It counted up to 11000 men while campaigns. So while marching or in the battle the standard (signa) could not be missing. It was carried by the signifer. The signifer enjoyed highest recognition, the standard itself veneration. The signifer was part of the Pincipales, what can be considered as a position like officer. Their pay was higher as the normal one, too. Signifers attracted attention with their special uniform. Their conspicuous helmet could be closed with a mask. Fixed was it with a prepared predator's head for example of a lion or bear. The predator's forelegs were knot, while the rest of the fur covered the sigifer's back. Especially experienced soldiers, which stood out because of bravery and courage, often were made signifers. The signum was a hep or orientation and cold not fall while battles. Therefore a signifer - because of his special task - was really handicapped while battle.
