The two typical weapons a Roman soldier would have been armed with were, more often than not, the gladius and the pilum. The type of pilum, or javelin, could vary from soldier to soldier, though, and some favored a lighter, Thin Pilum like this one. A historical pilum consisted of a wooden pole or shaft affixed to an iron shank, and this Roman javelin is no different, at least in terms of shape. The weapon consists of a wooden shaft designed for throwing, as well as a pointed butt-spike for added threat and utility. Affixed into the javelins haft is a long metal spike that ends with a barbed, pyramidal tip that was designed to promote penetration, while also disabling whatever it lodged itself in. This pilum was designed to be lighter than average, which enhances its range and mobility, while cutting down on its penetrative power somewhat. The pole of this weapon measures 54 inches long, while the metal shank head measures 36.75 inches long. Authentic in look and feel, this Thin Pilum would look great carried in the hands of a Roman re-enactor fully dressed in Roman armor, and it would look just as great carefully displayed in a collectors decor of antique Roman arms and armor.
