Ooooooooh he gotcha!

Not really  :twisted:

I was wrong as this from the Arch of Constantine, but the arch was built re-using some ealier monuments, and this very part was depicting emperor Trajan's dacian wars. So that's late 1st/early 2nd century, not 4th century source. The rest of those soldiers equipement, like the gladius and its balteus, doesn't look late roman at all either. The late roman sword was the spatha from the 3rd century onwards, and it was a long sword, held in a scabbard on the left side unlike the earlier gladius.

Don't listen to him Dudro, he speaks in lies and heresy.
Cut out his tongue and put him to the stake, and give me my lorica segmentata.  :evil:
