Under the sign of the Roman eagle
The prominent motifs on the front of the Roman oval shield correspond to the model on the ancient triumphal column of Trajan and represent three of the most important motifs of the Roman world. First, the symbol of Roman military power par excellence, the eagle. Enthroned on the front top of the Roman oval shield, the field emblem of the Roman military dominates the upper half of the shield. The center is dominated by the real metal shield boss and another symbol of Roman omnipotence. The laurel wreath, victory sign of Jupiter and symbol of imperial power. The lower half of the obverse is dedicated to the mythical roots of Rome. You can see Romulus and Remus being suckled by the famous she-wolf.
Things to know about Roman oval shields
Oval shields were carried into the field by auxiliary units for the longest time. This served especially to better distinguish the different troop types, even at a distance. In the course of numerous army reforms, most of the Roman army of Late Antiquity wore oval shields. However, the period to which the offered shield is modeled refers to the end of the 1st century and the beginning of the 2nd century, meaning especially the Dacian Wars, whose battlefields are located in present-day Romania.
