RM 54-64 Dacian Celtic Warrior, 2nd Century A.C.

History

The Dacians were a mixture of races and cultures of Celtic traditions who lived in the north regions of Danube (present-day Romania). In 101 A.D. they were attacked by the Romans under the emperor Traianus. The Dacians lived in a prosperous land that attracted the interests of Rome. In the spring of 102, after a long siege, the Romans conquered the fortresses of Costesti and Capalna, forcing Decebalus, the Dacian chief, to ask for peace. The conditions imposed were extremely harsh for the Dacians who rebelled against them, so Traianus decided to definitely subdue that people. In June 105 he left Rome and after having crossed the Danube, attacked Sarmizegetusa. Decebalus escaped to the Carpathian Mountains, but in order not to be captured he committed suicide. At the end of the summer of 106 the Dacians had been completely defeated and Dacia became a Roman province.
The model represents a Dacian warrior with an elliptical shield that can be decorated with Celtic emblems and figures. The helmet is conical and has side cheek protectors. He is carrying a long Celtic sword and a dagger. He is wearing a tunic, cloak, trousers and leather shoes. He is protected by chain mail.

Sculptor: Gianni La Rocca.
Historical research: Costas Rodopoulos.
Translation: Riccardo Carrabino.
