This soldier probably belongs to one of the garrison units in Egypt under the rule of Justinian.
He wears a wide short sleeve tunic with the fret features, badges and stripes of the Lower Roman Empire.
Protects his pimples with strips of fabric used since then until the first half of the twentieth century.
His helmet is the cheapest model of the imperial low era with the addition of a nasal protector that makes its Persian influence clearer.
The Roman soldier no longer wears cali but a Roman footwear similar to that used throughout the Middle Ages, derived from Roman civil calceus.
Its flat circular shield is of clear barbaric influence and considerably distances the form of combat of this soldier from that of his legionary ancestor.
