Product Description: This Gladiator Shield is made from lead-free pewter and is a 3D model of a Scutum shield. It is supplied on a quality key-chain. The shield key-ring is presented on a Roman key-ring header card.

Information: A "Samnite" gladiator was armed with a long rectangular shield (scutum), a plumed helmet, a short sword, and often a greave on his left leg. It was frequently said that Samnites were the lucky ones since they got large shields and good swords.

The scutum shield was a large rectangular curved shield made from three sheets of wood glued together and covered with canvas and leather, usually with a spindle shaped boss along the vertical length of the shield. When fighting enemies armed with swords and spears, the shield offered much needed protection.
