Late roman army greaves
#1
Hi guys!

First post here and I figured this is a good place to ask:

So I've been wondering did 4-5 century Roman infantry use greaves?
Is there any archeological evidence for their use?
Or is it a matter of guessing?

Welcome!

They did, it's known from texts as well as artistic evidence.
