Scutum Description

The scutum shield, or Roman shield, was a type of shield used by the army of ancient Rome. The shield was used from fourth century B.C.E. to the fourth century C.E. The Romans adopted it when they switched from the military formation of the hoplite phalanx used by the Greeks, to the formation with maniples. In the former, the soldiers carried a round shield, which the called a clipeus. The scutum was a much larger shield. Originally it was an oblong and convex shield. By the first century BC it had developed into the rectangular, semi-cylindrical shield that is popularly associated with the scutum in modern times. This secondary version is the type sold here. This was not the only shield the Romans used; Roman shields were of varying types depending on the role of the soldier who carried it. Oval, circular and rectangular shields were used throughout Roman history.  This sword is 35 inches tall by 18 inches wide.
