reconstructions of daggers from 1st cen AD
#1
Hi everyone. Im trying to collect most of the pugio findings with datation from a 1st.century. Problem is, that i have pictures of the finds from Koln or Nijmegen, but still, it isnt enought and if I have some photos, i dont have detail information about size of a blades, lenght etc...information, which leads to sucesfull reconstruction of such findings. Do any of you have detail information about any of roman 1.st century findings of roman daggers, also with some detail photos of it? Because most of my books dont say anything about such detail information, i need. Internet  alsodidnt help me. Thank you :-)

This book comes to mind: "Pugio - Gladius brevis est", the bibliography should provide some more detailed sources as well...

"And the four bare walls stand on the seashore. a wreck a skeleton a monument of that instability and vicissitude to which all things human are subject. Not a dwelling within sight, and the farm labourer, and curious traveller, are the only persons that ever visit the scene where once so many thousands were congregated." T.Lewin 1867

Yes, i am on Pinterest and have a lot of pictures, but problem is that i dont have dimensions of each of those daggers, thats why im asking if someone have them so we can reconstruct them according to exact dimensions

Rather than looking at 'Pugio - Gladivs Brevis Est" (the name says it all really), whose authors firmly believe that lots of pugios were cut down swords and omit quite a few pugios from their book, you might ask someone who actually knows something about pugios. Wink

Post up a picture of the pugio you are interested in and I should be able to get you the information you need.
