Shield Boss 3D Model
© 2018 Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery Trust. Private Collection UK.
This highly decorative late 1st century shield boss was probably part of a set of parade armour. This shield boss depicts a youth although scenes from classical mythology were also very popular. The boss is inscriped on the back and tells us that it was owned by Aulus Val (…) Marcus, probably a Roman citizen.
This object is loaned from a private collection and is currently on display in the Frontier Gallery at Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery Trust.
