Roman Auxiliary shield color

Quote:Dear Graham, that makes sense. Yes, you are very right about the pink. Most "reenactors" are very reluctant displaying pink :-)

Perhaps it should be termed "salmon" and not pink and that way more may go for it. (I see lots of men wearing "salmon" coloured shirts these days :wink: )

I think 'OP' means Original Poster...

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!

Sorry OP =Original Poster


Together with the apparently white wool / felt on the Fayum shield we do seem to have some points for white shields for the early principate.

As reconstructed in my painting of Pullo and Vorenus with silvered designs.

While you save up your cash for Simon James's book, you might be interested in the summary of some of the Dura shield fragments identified by Cumont HERE. The rest of the thread has some more interesting shield-colour related stuff.

Thanks.I'll check it out

Shields and a whole lot more.

His website plus illustrations ( some of them) from the book http://www.le.ac.uk/ar/stj/dura.htm

And while the book is not cheap, it is well worth it.

And still you can get it for free (as an PDF) from Ethos...
