Mount for Spear Shaft

Late Roman

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 301

This object comes from the Vermand Treasure, the most richly appointed barbarian-warrior grave ever found. The grave was likely that of an auxiliary soldier stationed in the Roman province of Gaul. It also contained a shield, parts of which of which are on view in the Arms and Armor Galleries.
