                                      Legionaire Scutum 'Dura Europos' linen covered'

This scutum follows a Late Roman original found in the Roman Dura-Europos (Eastern Syria) fortress from the 3rd century. The dry desert climate in this region has preserved some painted roman shields very effectively.
This replica is made from plywood and covered in linen. It is handmade and also hand-pained. The shield and boss are not assembled upon delivery. There are 4 screws included for self-assembly.
