SARMATIAN STANDARD BEARER

An extract from The Armies and Enemies of Imperial Rome
by Phil Barker & Ian Heath



90.      SARMATIAN STANDARD BEARER

This man is a Black Sea Sarmatian like 89, since he has the four split coat, though of horn scales, has his scabbard at his side, and his standard is a vexillum instead of the Draco of the westerners, which would be like that of 55.
[Based on a Bosporan painted tomb]
