Rare original ancient Greek, Roman lead sling shot bullet archers ballista 1BC
Rare intact ancient late Greek Roman(2C.BC- 1Cent.AD) lead sling bullet 2 0.92 gm. Nice. Interesting and absolutely genuine Greek-Roman sling bullet. Slingers were employed by ancient armies to great effect. Either directing accurate sniper fire or indirect barrages against enemy troop formations. In antiquity the most feared slingers were the Cretans employed by the armies of the Greeks and Alexander. And the Balaeric islanders employed by Hannibal and later by the Romans. Archers wore also equipped with lead bullets to shot with arrows and slings. Authenticity guaranteed. Most of these date 218 B.C. Second Punic War to Roman Civil Wars between Caesar and the sons of Pompey the Great. Ring is in good condition and a Very Rare Inclusion to the very finest Antiquity Collection. In ancient times since banks did not exist. Soldiers would bury ... moretheir coins and jewelry before going into battle, and many of them did not return. They were also buried to avoid tax collectors and thieves. In ancient times, a ring distinguished an individual in a way that other forms of jewelry did not. Finger rings represented the language of social code, and connoted one’s social standing. Under the Empire, the finger ring was still considered a privilege, conferred for military distinction. As time wore on and attitudes changed, the ring was more freely bestowed. Even so, the ring retained its position as a mark of dignity, as a rich ornament, as an important seal, and as a token of betrothal. Special caskets were created for holding rings, and it was customary to remove a ring from the casket, to place on the finger of a visiting guest welcomed into one's home.

Still retaining original shape and with letters resembling"TPAT?N" In excellent condition. Age wear and patina as shown Measures 1.1 inches long and weighs over 29 grams The sling is mentioned by Homer and by other Greek ... moreauthors. The historian of the retreat of the Ten Thousand. 401 BC, relates that the Greeks suffered severely from the slingers in the army of Artaxerxes II of Persia, while they themselves had neither cavalry nor slingers, and were unable to reach the enemy with their arrows and javelins This deficiency was rectified when a company of 200 Rhodians. Who understood the use of leaden sling-bullets, was formed. They were able, says Xenophon, to project their missiles twice as far as the Persian slingers, who used large stones Ancient authors seemed to believe. Incorrectly, that sling-bullets could penetrate armour, and that lead projectiles, heated by their passage through the air, would melt in flight Various ancient peoples enjoyed a reputation for skill with the sling. Thucydides mentions the Acarnanians and Livy refers to the inhabitants of three Greek cities on the northern coast of the Peloponnesus as expert slingers. Livy also mentions the most famous of ancient skillful slingers: the people of the Balearic Islands. Of these people Strabo writes: And their training in the use of slings used to be such. From childhood up, that they would not so much as give bread to their child
ANCIENT CELTIC/ROMAN LEAD SLING SHOT 1st ibera romana bala onda iberica
En tiempos de César. Gracias al conjunto de libros del llamado Corpus Caesarianum, sabemos que el legionario tenía como armamento ofensivo reglamentario el pilum y la espada. También dentro del ejercito romano existía un cuerpo no mencionado hasta ahora que estaba formado por soldados no romanos: los auxiliares extranjeros o auxilia. En el caso del éxito en el reclutamiento de tropa en Hispánia. Los romanos tuvieron suerte irregular. En un principio y bajo el pretexto de combatir a los cartagineses, los cuales tenían presencia en la península antes que los romanos y de las promesas de que una vez los cartagineses fueran expulsados, los romanos se retirarían, estos consiguieron atraer a cierto número de íberos. Pero una vez los Púnicos vencidos, los romanos empezaron la conquista ... morede Hispánia y aquí también empezaron sus problemas en el reclutamiento de tropa indígena. Pero¿cuál fue el armamento del auxilia? En un principio podemos afirmar que el principal armamento de este cuerpo militar era arrojadizo. Compuesto de hondas de diferente longitud para conseguir diferentes alcances y el arco. Por el cual hay controversia en cuanto a la distancia de alcance. Según diferentes opiniones, el arco y su uso no era muy extendido. De todas formas, su uso vendría dado por la necesidad estratégica y esto lo demuestra la cantidad de hallazgos de puntas de flecha, como por ejemplo los de Osuna, donde se encontraron gran cantidad de ellas y que podrían clasificarse en cuatro tipos principales y con un tamaño que está entre los 6 y los 8 centímetros. En este caso su producción es indudable que fue local, hispana o lusitana, existiendo gran número de fuentes que acreditan la existencia de gran cantidad de arqueros entre las tropas auxiliares del ejercito de Pompeyo. Según las opiniones citadas anteriormente, la distancia de alcance de las flechas era de entre cien y doscientos metros. Los hay q
