Roman Pompeii Pugio Dagger with Scabbard


The Pugio was a soldier's dagger that was used as a sidearm by Roman Legionaries and Auxiliaries at the time of the Roman Conquest of Britain. It seems likely that is was designed predominantly as a thrusting weapon in much the same way as the larger 'Gladius' sword. It is understood that Pugio daggers were used in the assassination of Julius Caesar. This well-made replica is one of the best available to buy in the UK. It was most likely used by an officer or Centurion on account of the ornate brass decoration. It is hand forged from steel and features a leather lined sheath with brass fittings and a sandwiched horn and steel hilt that is often found on surviving pieces. Its authentic design and blunt blade make it a favourite amongst Roman reenactors.
