  Roman Era Swords

The Roman sword is one of the most recognized swords across the world and of any culture. More commonly known as the gladius, this sword was used between the 4th century BC and the 3rd century AD. The Romans required great swords since they were extremely skilled and disciplined. The Romans helped make this one of the most deadly swords in Roman history.

The most commonly known figures of the Roman Empire were the gladiators. Gladiators were volunteers, prisoners, or slaves who fought for public entertainment. The people who volunteers did so for publicity. For the slaves and prisoners, enough victories could bring the warrior his freedom. These events had evolved over the years from small private events to hugs events in arenas. These gladiators trained for many long hard hours and fought specific battles. Each type of battle was distinguished by the weapon and armor to be used in that battle. Normally the gladiators fought one on one battle that ended one of three ways, either a surrender, injury, or death.

Some of the gladiators used a famous sword known as the gladius short sword. Gladius is a Latin word that means “sword”. The gladius was a well-balanced sword that was best used for thrusting but was also good at slashing attacks. The gladius was also used by foot soldiers in ancient roman times.

Another sword used in the Roman era was the Roman Spatha sword. The Spatha was a little longer than the gladius and was primarily used by the cavalry. This weapon would later be adopted by barbarian tribes and evolved into the early medieval swords.
