Gladius from Mainz, I century BC – III century AD.

 600

Roman
I BC – III AD.

Scabbard included.

The Mainz Gladius is made of heavily corroded iron and a sheath made of tinned and gilded bronze. The point of the sword was more triangular than the Gladius Hispaniensis. The Mainz Gladius still had wasp-waisted curves. The decoration on the scabbard illustrates the ceding of military victory to Augustus by Tiberius after a successful Alpine campaign. Augustus is semi-nude, and sits in the pose of Jupiter, flanked by the Roman gods of Victory and Mars Ultor, while Tiberius, in military dress, presents Augustus with a statuette of Victory.
