A wonderful accessory for Roman re-enactment and for making your own (leather) armour. A phalera for the Romans was similar to a medal or trophy. These round discs were given in the Roman army as a reward to soldiers who had distinguished themselves in battle. The discs were made of silver, bronze or gold. During military parades, Romans wore the phalerae on their leather armor. Veterans with an armor full of Phalerae were highly regarded and respected. This large phalera is decorated with the head of Medusa, 1 of the 3 Gorgons in Greek mythology. Due to the large size, this phalera is best suited to wear in the center of an armor.
