Roman arrowhead 2-6th century BC mounted in 18 kt gold, olive-green patina

About the Item

This small bronze arrowhead, exhibiting an olive-green patina, resembles examples from the Villa Julia Collection. It is mounted in 18-karat gold, showcasing an exclusive design by the Serra store. The most common form of Roman arrowhead was trilobate, known for its aerodynamic and accurate shape. The Romans relied on mercenary auxiliary archer troops to support their powerful legions. During the Republican period, slingers were often employed alongside bowmen. The design of Roman Republican arrowheads varied widely, influenced by the origins of the auxiliary troops that produced them. Flat sides and triangular sockets characterize italic trilobate arrowheads. Caesar used archers against Pompey during the great imperatorial struggles in Spain. By the early 1st century A.D., auxiliary units of foot and horse archers were commonly employed. Germanicus utilized Gallic and German bowmen in his victories in 14 A.D., while Septimius Severus deployed mounted archers from Osrhoene in Mesopotamia.

    Located in Soquel, CA
    An interesting, authentic, silver denarius coin from the period of the Roman Republic in 79 BCE, featuring a griffin leaping, is set in a Steven Battelle ancient inspired handmade matte-finish textured bezel mount with 1.8mm VS1 diamond accent. The denarius was approximately the daily wage of a soldier in ancient Rome. This particular type of coin is known as a denarius serratus. The ragged edges of the coin are intentional (all coins of this type have them) to show that coin is pure silver. The minting of the coins was an annual office shared by 3 men, and they often placed the family name on the coins. This coin was minted by moneyer L. Papius, who was probably from Lanuvium, which was about 19 miles outside of Rome. The reverse side of the coin displays...
