                             Roman Phalera, Large Legionary Eagle Brass or  Tinned Brass

A phalera was the Roman equivalent to a military medal or trophy. In Ancient Rome, these ornate disc-shaped plates, usually made of gold, silver or bronze, were awarded to Roman soldiers who had distinguished themselves in battle. During parades, a highly decorated Roman Legionary (called a phaleratus) would exhibit his phalerae on a leather chest harness worn over his armour. Honoured veterans who had amassed enough medals for a full harness were highly respected.

This reproduction of a Roman phalera has been cast from brass and bears the effigy of the legionary eagle or aquila with spread wings. This phalera is available in gold coloured (brass) or silver coloured (tin plated brass)

This brass phalera is perfectly suited for your own DIY project or as a replacement/spare plate for Roman chest harnesses, for example our product no. 1016676500 and 1016676102. Mounting hardware is not included in delivery.

An ideal accessory for Roman re-enactment.
