Manning 1985 Both plates may have been standard products, mass-produced for such sheaths. An even finer example of this kind of scabbard is the 'Sword of Tiberius' from Mainz in the Department of Greek and Roman Antiquities (registration no. GR 1866,0806.1). It is an example, apparently unique in Britain, of the type of gladius which was current in the first part of the first century AD, a type which, as its design makes clear, was intended primarily as a stabbing weapon. Günter Ulbert has called it the Mainz type (Ulbert 1969a), for the largest group, including the Sword of Tiberius, comes from the River Rhine at that city. Sometime before or around the middle of the first century this design was replaced by a new type with a blade of similar length (c. 50 cm), but with parallel edges which begin to converge about 5 cm to 10 cm from the tip to give a relatively short point. With a width of c. 5 cm they are slightly narrower than the blades of the Mainz type. This new form Ulbert called the Pompeii type, after examples found there (Ulbert 1969a, 97ff.).

Exhibition label :: COMPASS :: The Fulham Sword Roman Britain, 1st century AD Found in the River Thames at Fulham, London This is the characteristic sword of the Roman legionary at this period. Only the handle, and the wooden or leather lining of the sheath are missing. Metallographic examination of the iron blade has shown that the cutting edges have been hardened. The maker has decorated the bronze scabbard plate with embossed motifs. These include the popular Roman motif of the she-wolf suckling the twins Romulus and Remus, the legendary founders of Rome. Traces of tinning show that the scabbard plate would originally have been a shiny silver colour.

Iron sword (Parazonicin) with bronze sheath. The greater part of the blade is almost parallel sided, although it splays out slightly just below the shoulders, which are straight and level. The tip, which is some 18 cm long, accounts for almost exactly one-third of the length of the blade. The tang is broken. This well-known sword was found in its scabbard, the frame, chape and two bronze plates of which survived. Both plates are decorated in repoussé. The upper one shows a stag attacked by two hounds, flanked by trees with Romulus, Remus and the wolf below, all within a simple border of elongated dots. The second and larger plate has a floral scroll, with birds and butterflies in the spaces, and a pair of hares (?) in the lower corners; the border is a narrow cable with dots on the lower edge.
