    About this Artwork

    The spatha was a white weapon used by the Roman army during the period of decay and barbarian invasions. It originated in the first century after the gladius used by the infantry, giving it greater size (70-100 centimeters of blade) so that it could be used effectively by the cavalry.1 Later (4th century) the spatha was also adopted by the Roman infantry, in imitation of the Germanic barbarian warriors, who used long swords, and later passed on to the barbarian peoples both allies and invaders. Unlike the "gladius" used previously, which was mostly a stabbing weapon at close range, the spatha, being longer and heavier, allowed to maintain a greater distance with the enemy and was more to hit with punching. This reflects the change in the tactics of the Roman soldier, who during the decline lost the aggressive pursuit of the melee assault of earlier times
