Looks excellent Tony! You make the phalera too?

Gaivs Yes and no the torcs I made copied from Tib. Clav. Maximvs tombstone I liked the simplicity of them the two lions I bought and the 3 discs are made by Brian stobbs I forgot I had them he gave me some brass they were in with them about 20 years ago Blush , they show Egyptian  scenes which fills in well with my time in that country and the centre plate I did, which is Victory herself which I used a stone carving from Leptis Magnus in repousse and then tinned well I did everything tinned Smile I love the bling side to the Centvrio but my kit also shows my 29 years in service so there is a bit wear n tear here and there. On the whole the public could recognise  me as a Centvrio even without vitas straight away so that was great Smile still a few bits to do  but happy so far. It may take another 30 years but I might just make Primvs Pilvs  Tongue Smile Thanks again for all your comments.

I've had a crossbow brooch for a long time, it's just a late 4th century example and I'm looking for a 5th century one.

From Castra, 2016!

I borrowed Rusty's Squamata since my armor wasn't done yet, and he wasn't kitting out this year.
