During the siege of Numantia, Scipio Semilianus formed a personal bodyguard of 500 men. These became known as the Praetorian Guard, after the praetorium, the area of the camp where the general's tent was pitched. The Emperor Augustus (27BC-14AD) formed these Praetorians into a special bodyguard for himself and increased their number to about 4500 men.
To distinguish the Signifer from other fighting troops,
he wore a dagged mail shirt over a tunic instead of semental armor, and the 'Pompeii' sword on his right side.
The signifer was routinely decorated with silvered and gilt bronze plaques and figures, and wore a small round shield on his back.
Along with your Roman Signifer Keychain, we will include a Colosseum postcard, Free of Charge!
