The Pewter Roman Eagle Pencil Topper displays a highly detailed eagle, or Aquila, modeled after the standard of a Roman legion. This prominent icon appeared throughout the Roman Empire and maintains its association to this day. Standards were symbols of the honor and bravery of the legion and were to be protected at all costs. Below the eagle, the topper features the letters SPQR, initials standing for Senatus Populusque Romanus, or The Senate and People of Rome. This mark of the Roman Empire appeared on buildings, army standards, and coins. This pewter eagle is mounted on a black pencil printed with the Latin words, Veni Vidi Vici, meaning, I came, I saw, I conquered. History enthusiasts are sure to enjoy the look of this charming desk accent, making it a great gift idea and collectible.
