The Roman Legionary javelin, the Pilum was a tactical innovation in ancient warfare; the thin head shaft, usually made from soft iron, was designed to bend upon impact, making it impossible for Rome’s foes to throw their pilum back at them. A legionnaire typically carried two pilum into battle, and they were to be thrown moments before battle was joined to disrupt enemy formations. Many of Rome’s barbarian foes fought in a ‘’shield wall’’ formation of interlocked shields. The pilum that didn’t outright kill opponents would often be embedded within shields, rendering them useless and unwieldy. The pilum struck with considerable force, and some versions were designed with weights and armor piercing heads that could penetrate shields to kabob the warrior behind. Pilum came in several varieties, this variant being the ‘’thin’’ pilum.

This pilum has a blackened steel head mounted onto a hardwood shaft. The butt-cap is tapered wood with blackened metal plate overlaid.
