This soldier represents a legionary of the late Roman Empire in the fourth century AD. C.
It is the type of troops that fought under the command of Constantino or Magencio.
Soldiers with this team fought on the Milvio bridge.
He wears a helmet of clear Germanic influence of riveted plates from which the medieval "Spange Helm" will be born.
Despite being part of a legion, its organization and tactics are no longer the same as in the primitive republican and imperial legions.
His spear is no longer a throwing javelin, and his sword is longer than the "Gladius."
Its round shield no longer covers as it covered the "Scutum", in such a way that the formations in closed order no longer have the same form and purpose as the original ones.
It is a round and flat shield with a central "umbo" that looks much more like the crude Gothic and Viking shields than the one of the Mediterranean panoply.
Its armor is a lorica scamata but not like that of the ancient centurions and other commands of the primitive legions, but with much larger scales.
