Product Description

Our Roman Plumbata features a red painted wood shaft with leather fletchings and a weighted steel tip with black finish.

The Plumbata, a type of heavy dart, was a fleched weapon with a barbed head, resembling an arrow.  It is said that certain selected units carried five plumbata in the hollow of the shield. Weighted with lead and with a barbed iron point, this missile was widely used in the Roman army.  It was thrown in a high trajectory, like the longer, heavier javelin, just before engaging in close combat.

Overall Length: 19 3/4"
