Large Roman Phalera, Gorgon Medusa, Tinned Brass

A phalera is the Roman equivalent to a military medal or trophy. In Ancient Rome, these ornate disc-shaped plates, usually made of gold, silver or bronze, were awarded to Roman soldiers who had distinguished themselves in battle. During parades, a highly decorated Roman legionary (called a phaleratus) would exhibit his phalerae on a leather chest harness worn over his armour. Honored veterans who had amassed enough medals for a full harness were highly respected.

This large, weighty reproduction of a Roman phalera is cast from brass and tin-plated. It bears the effigy of Medusa, also known as Gorgo, one of the three monstrous female Gorgons in Greek mythology.

Owing to its size and heft, this brass phalera with Gorgon head is best used as a central piece on a phalerae harness. It is perfectly suited for your own DIY project or as a replacement/spare plate for Roman chest harnesses, for example our product no. 1016676500. Mounting hardware is not included in delivery.

An ideal accessory for Roman re-enactment.
