Imperial Italic A Helmet from Pompeii.

     I was fortunate to get this beautiful replica of Imperial Italic A Helmet from Pompeii. This is an excellent
addition to my helmet collection. This helmet is beyond of widely used helmets in the Roman reconstructions.
So this helmet will be a diverse addition to our first century club equipment.


 

     We was fortunate to get this 2 beautiful replica of Imperial Italic A Helmets from Pompeii. This is an excellent addition to our helmet collection. This 2 helmets is beyond of widely used helmets in the Roman reconstructions.
     So this helmets will be a diverse addition to our first century club equipment. Made from bronze CuSn6 . Both helmet are different from each other. But even the 2 originals are not identical helmets taking into account that they are produced by the same manufacturer and are from the same model.

     The Burlafingen coolus helmet produced by Ancient Empires Reproductions This helmet is very appropriate add to our first centuries equipment. Especially for the August period. The original Burlafingen helmet is based on the material analysis of the helmet conducted by the Archäologische Staatssammlung Munich and Landesmuseum Bonn.
     The original of this helmet is now in the Archäologische Staatssammlung in Munich. It was found in 1959 near Burlafingen, Southern Germany. The helmet has two owner inscriptions, P. Aurelius und M. Munatius and also the Legio XVI Gallica is mentioned. The helmet dates in the early first century AD, and is classiefied in the Robinson-categories as „Coolus G“.

     Our new club additive related to the early first-century period. Quality replica of bronze helmet type Haltern Museum. Historical period the last quarter of the first century B.C. and first quarter of first A.D.

Hagenau type helmet Haltern Museum
     Legionnaires helmet found in the camp of Haltern (Germany), places used by Roman forces in the 9 AD during a raid of the Teutoburg Forest
“Halfway during the 1st century BC, another type of helmet appeared, the Hagenau (German teminology) or Coolus. And that's where things start to get complicated. For one, the English classification of helmets, introduced by Russel Robinson in the 1970-ies, has never been adapted by German archaeologists and I admit I don't know it well enough to use it (I'll stick to the German distinctions), and second, several types of helmets were used side by side because older Montefortino helmets would not be thrown away just because an improved version appeared.”

     Bronze helmet of the Weisenau Type with a distinct variation (a feature not observed elsewhere): two iron cheekpieces with copper edging and the remainder of a figural brass decoration on the right cheekpiece. The helmet belongs to a relative small group of Weisenau helmets without "eyebrows" and articulated horizontal ribs at the back of the skull. Furthermore the neckguard is entirely plain and undecorated but it features a singular hole at its very center. The frontal protective bar carries a three letter inscription (underside).

     The Theilenhofen helmet was found as a deposit (together with the cavalry helmet) in a stone building of the vicus of the fort of Theilenhofen (Germany), the building was destroyed by fire. The floor of the building contained fragments of Antonine sigallata and a coin of Commodus (189 AD), other finds indicate use of the building through the end of the 2nd century and into the first third of the 3rd century. The helmets themselves do not show any traces of a fire and may therefore have been hidden in the building AFTER it had been destroyed by fire. They are PRESUMED to have had a long history of use prior to their deposition and therefore usually dated around the middle of the 2nd century but earlier or later dates are absolutely possible therefore this type of helmet will probably have seen use in and around 200 AD.

Gladius from Dubravica
     The idea to re-create this gladius came from the publication from the book “Gladii from Dubravica“ from Miroslav B. Vujovic Belgrade Museum,and that is connected with my favorite Roman Augustan period. Also in relation to the IIII Scythica legion that we recreate here in province SCYTHIA MINOR present Dobrogea Bulgaria.
     I made her a few quotes from the book:
Gladii from Dubravica A contribution to the study of Roman swords on the territory of Serbia

     Our two Roman sword from frescoes and on stella are shown Gladius or Spatha version with concentric circles plates. I chose to do two spatha with concentric circles applications for our clubs future cavalry project.

The Sword of Tiberius. Date 15 (circa). Excavated/Findspot: Mainz (Europe, Germany, Rhineland Palatinate, Mainz).


Of course thisreplica is not perfect. There is a lot to be desired. But for the reenactment purpose is quite satisfactory.This object illustrates the ceding of military victory to Augustus by Tiberius after a successful German military campaign. Augustus is shown semi-nude, and sits in the pose of Jupiter, flanked by Victory and Mars Ultor ('the Avenger'), while Tiberius, in military dress, presents Augustus with a statuette of Victory. The shield on which the seated figure rests his left arm is inscribed in Latin, Felicitas Tiberi, while the shield held by Victory nears the legend, Vic[toria] Aug[usti].

The iron sword and its decorated bronze scabbard was almost certainly commissioned for a senior officer to commemorate a victory in the lengthy and bloody military campaigns in Germany.
This sword is a very appropriate for my personage. Latin name that I use In the club is dedicated to real person who lived at that time probably. Мy latin name in legion IIII SCYTHICA is Quintus Etuvius Sexti -from Vindobona-Centurio from IIII SCYTHICA in the time of Tiberius from Vindobona (present Vienna), who served 35 years with IIII Scythica (Dessau 9090) and and rise to ranks of Centurion .Hi was conscripted at the latest, in the time of Tiberius (for his offensive).

     Our new chest designed specifically for our musical instruments. I'm tired after each historical reconstruction to fix our musical instruments. This is the only way musical instruments to be transported safely!
