Gladiator's sword, Roman Period, 1st. Century b.C
The Roman Gladiator sword, also known as the "gladius", was a short sword used by Roman soldiers and gladiators in ancient Rome. The gladius was typically around 18-24 inches in length, with a double-edged blade that tapered to a point.
The gladius was designed for close combat and was used primarily for thrusting rather than slashing. The hilt of the sword was typically made of wood or bone, and the blade was often decorated with intricate designs or inscriptions.
