I used the search option about the Missorium of Kerch where Constantius II is showed with his guardsman, but I've found nothing. So, I post it for those who want to see how an emperor and an elite soldier looked in the first half of the IV century Aera Vulgaris, when Julian lived.

Looks like both he and the soldier are wearing the Deurne shoes!
The emperor's campagi have also a sort of darker "pois" decorations. Moreover the baldric looks as fully jeweled or so (no leather seems visible).

The urbicula of the shoulders are giant... and the guardsman has a torque like in the Ravenna mosaics but quite before...

And the guardsman hair is already long.

Et voilà the colour pic, kindly posted on the french forum by Damianus...
