They didn't believe in walking softly in Ancient Rome. The TV series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" makes that painfully clear. It focuses on the story of Spartacus, the famous Thracian gladiator who led a legendary slave revolt against the Roman Republic from 73-71 B.C.
This official Spartacus shield from the TV series is handcrafted of solid steel and coated with brass. Light marks and scratches lend it an authentically antiqued look. The shield weighs 2.5 kg and is equipped with two sturdy leather loops bolted onto the back – they are each 3 cm wide.
This shield comes with a certificate of authenticity.
