Product Description

ROM007  “Roman Signifer

A ‘Signifer’ was the standard bearer of a Roman Legion.  He carried the ‘Signum’ (standard) for a cohort or century.  As each century had its own    Signifer that meant there were approximately 59 in a whole Legion.

The ‘Signum’ had a number of disks or medallions along with other elements mounted on a long pole.  The pole itself would often be ‘topped’ with a hand-shaped ‘manus’ denoting the oath of loyalty taken by soldiers when they first enlisted. A wreath of honour world usually surround the ‘manus’ (hand)

Signifers’ would also carry a small decorated round shield (a buckler) and wore a wolf or bearskin on top of their helmets and body armour.
