The second innovation: live Petersburgers and visitors could not see all this beauty. And all because this year there are special requirements: because of the pandemic, access to the park is closed, it was also impossible to see from the water, since part of the Neva and the Gulf of Finland were blocked. GIMS boats and various services went around the water area and made sure that no one violated the ban. Law enforcement officers were also on duty on land: if they met people in a territory where there should not be anyone, they politely asked to leave the place and go home.

The 6 weapons that made the Praetorian Guard the most deadly soldiers of the Roman legions

The image we have of praetorians is the one that settled after the reform motivated by Caesar Augustus. He was the one who took that small group that formed the personal escort of some local leaders and shaped, in the year 27 a. C., a new permanent body of 4,500 elite soldiers ready to lay down their lives for him. Thus was born the Praetorian Guard that movies have mythologized today. Better paid than the rest of the combatants, skilled in the art of fighting and with some political influence, this experienced unit had, when fighting on foot, weapons similar to that of the legionaries. However, its members took care to modify them to demonstrate that their purchasing power was much greater.

1-Pilum (javelin)

The function of the pilum, despite its characteristic spear appearance, was not its use in close combat. On the contrary, experts like the doctor in History Raúl Menéndez Argüín or the disseminator Stephen Dando-Collins They are supporters in their respective works that it corresponded to the most basic throwing weapon of the Roman infantry. Beyond the fact that its high weight was a nuisance during the long marches that the soldiers carried out, the reality is that its advantages were so many that the legions used it for no less than five centuries. The Praetorian Guard, in fact, was one of the last units to abandon its use back in the 3rd century.

In practice, and despite the fact that the measures varied greatly over the decades (Dando-Collins states in “Legions of Rome” that the “shortest was 152 centimeters and the longest was 213”), the pilum consisted of two distinct parts. Its basic structure (the lower one or pole) was a circular piece of wood whose upper part was made, according to the Conservator-Restorer of the Museum of Palencia. Carmelo Fernández Ibáñez in your dossier “Weapons equipment of the high imperial legionary”, in «truncated pyramid» form. At the same time, it had “hand stop functions”.

At its lower end, the wooden structure was topped by a small iron cone (cupis) whose purpose was for the weapon to remain nailed to the ground vertically when the legionary needed it. However, Fernández is in favor of the fact that, at present, there is no archaeological evidence of this.


The upper part of the pilum, the moharra, was the dangerous one. In “The Praetorian Guard I. Equipment”, Argüin explains that it was metallic and that it, in turn, had two different elements. A long metal part (between 60 and 90 cm) and then the tip (5 cm).

As with the cupis, there are no archaeological remains of the metallic sphere which, according to most experts, was included between the moharra and the wooden structure. “It was believed to see in it a counterweight so that the weapon gained weight in its parabolic fall and was, thus, more effective and deadly,” reveals the expert.

The result was a weapon with great penetrating power that its wearer threw from a distance between 5 and 20 meters to the enemy. His danger was twofold. On the one hand, it had the ability to overcome armor and embed itself in human flesh. On the other, it caused a great problem on the contrary if it managed to stop the impact with its shield. And, it was almost impossible to extract the pilum if it stuck into it due to the pyramid shape that had its tip. The best, when that sad moment came, was to get rid of that important wooden defense.

The Pretrorians included eagle-shaped watermarks in their javelins to distinguish themselves from other soldiers

According to the historian Plutarch, during the time of Cayo Mario the legions made a curious change in the pilum. Apparently, one of the metal pins that joined the structure with the moharra was replaced by an equivalent one in wood. The reason? It was intended that when the javelin struck the enemy shields, this piece would split and the enemy would be unable to reuse the weapon. However, historians do not agree on whether this trick was real or not.

As Praetorians who were, our protagonists included elements that differentiated their stack from those of the rest of the troop. The usual thing was that they decorated the ballast of these weapons with a filigree in the shape of Eagle, instead of the characteristic scorpion. As stated Arturo Sánchez Sanz in “Praetorians, the elite of the Roman army”This also allowed them to retrieve the javelins after the fight and take them to a local blacksmith to “rehabilitate the bent ends”.

2-Lancea (light javelin)

He until or lance it was a throwing weapon used, at least in principle, by light infantry and cavalry. However, its advantages in combat ended up generalizing it and ended up replacing the pilum. The Praetorian GuardReluctant to change, he avoided adopting it until the third century.

In practice, the pilum’s little sister had smaller dimensions and less weight, which translated into lower manufacturing costs and much greater comfort for the wearer. Despite the fact that these characteristics limited its penetration capacity, its reach was much greater. In fact, it was powered by a strip thruster leather called amentum.

Fernández makes clear in his dossier that his design was much simpler than that of the pilum: «It consisted of three parts: the iron point or moharra, the central part of the pole made of circular section wood and, at the opposite end, an iron cone also called a regatón or cupis ». The function of this auction was to keep the weapon in an upright position when required, balance the total weight of the lance, serve as a rapier if the opposite point split and, finally, control the crowds in the event of disturbances. . “It was very useful against units that had lost formation or were fighting in retreat,” adds Sánchez.

This author is in favor of the fact that the Praetorian Guard, although reluctant, used the lance to carry out their escort and security tasks inside the palace.

3-Gladius (short sword)

He gladius was, along with pilum, the basic endowment weapon of any Roman soldier. Whether they were infants or horsemen, for centuries legionaries proudly carried this short sword in their girdles.

It was in the 3rd century BC. C. when the legions first encountered this curious utensil. By then they saw their effectiveness in the hands of the mercenaries celtiberians who had enlisted in Hannibal’s army. The rest, as they say, is history. In a short time, the so-called gladius hispaniensis it gained a place among the deadliest units of antiquity.

Although the gladius had a multitude of evolutions and up to four outstanding models (each with its own particularities and measurements), they all had a series of common characteristics. “It was a very manageable, overwhelming, with double edge and sharp point, which in principle could be used as a rapier and a cutting instrument », explains Fernández. As true as this is that it was primarily designed to be nailed. In practice, the blade used to measure between 40 and 50 cm to those added to the 30 of the grip.


From the 1st century AD. C., the favorite model among the Praetorian Guard was the Pompeii. Established after the reign of Tiberius, it had a blade of 50 centimeters, narrower than its predecessor, and straight and parallel edges. “It is a more manageable sword, both in the rapier and in the cut,” adds Fernández.

The wooden scabbard had rich filigree in the case of the Praetorian Guard, which demonstrated its higher salary and its access to artisans with better abilities.

Its structure consisted of four parts. «The blade was made entirely of iron, the bone grip being anatomical or fluted with ellipsoidal designs to prevent it from slipping with sweat and blood. At both ends the “stops” formed in the first place the semi-oval knob made of metal, bone or more rarely ivory. And on the opposite side, a normally wooden pommel covered by a bronze sheet, “reveals Fernández in his dossier.

On the side on which the weapon was carried there is much controversy. The most widespread idea thanks to the reliefs found in Italy is that, before the 3rd century, legionaries carried it on the right side. But it is also known that when the newly appointed emperor Severe charged against his new guard for ending the life of Pértinax (who was born and died in the 2nd century AD), he blurted out the following: “As soldiers chosen to guard the emperor, you carry your swords to the right, not to the left.”

4-Spatha (long sword)

From the 3rd century AD. C., and after the reforms promoted by the emperor Seventh SeverusA new weapon arrived in Rome that completely changed the way of understanding the fighting. This was the spatha, of a more considerable extension than the gladius.

Although the causes of its implantation were several, it seems that the most decisive was the use of spears by the Germanic barbarians. This forced the legionaries to carry longer weapons to be able to finish off the riders and prompted the arrival of cutting fencing to replace the leading one.

The spatha’s blade was almost twice as long as that of the gladius (between 90 and 100 cm) and, logically, more expensive to manufacture than its older sister. That made the first to use this sword were the praetorians and the officers. In fact, and as Sánchez reveals, the usual thing during the first years was that “it was a gift from the emperor himself.”

5-Pugio (dagger)

The dagger (pug) was the last weapon that the armies of Rome had within their arsenal. Originally, this dagger was used by soldiers of the Republican era. However, it was forgotten among the legionaries due to its small size and low offensive capacity. But the same did not happen with the Praetorian Guard. This adopted it in the 1st century BC. C. and maintained it for five hundred years. Although, yes, more as an element of distinction and ornament.

“The Praetorians’ attachment to their traditions, the need to participate in many more protocol events, or even their usefulness for certain tasks such as cutting food, removing branches, carving wood, etc., not only kept it in use, but over time it was produced with extreme richness, “reveals Sánchez.


In the same author’s words, the origin of this dagger is also found among the Hispanic troops. “The regulations had a minimum width on the sheet of between 3 and 6 centimeters and between 18 and 36 centimeters long. The area of ​​the central rib on the blade was slightly thicker than on the gladius to reinforce it, with a wide, flat shank that should make it easier to grip the handle. The latter did not vary much over time, inspired by the biglobular daggers of the Celtiberians from the 2nd century BC. C. », complete.


The breastplate It was one of the most distinctive signs of the Praetorian Guard during some periods. Although it is as true that in the reliefs it is possible to enjoy Praetorians dressed in rich armor, it is also that many went to battle equipped with the same ones that the legionaries used. Throughout the history of Rome there were four linked to the personal guard of the emperors.

The first, and indeed the most spectacular, was the lorica thorax (muscled breastplate). Its name was not misleading and represented a sculptural torso.

Second is the lorica hamata (chain mail), whose use would have spread, in Argüín’s words, during the first stage of this unit. «It was made using small metal rings linked together and completely protected the trunk of the wearer; sometimes it could extend below the waist to the thighs, “adds the expert. Its characteristics made it an ideal defense against cuts and arrows. However, its considerable weight (between 8 and 15 kilos) and its high manufacturing cost ended up condemning it to oblivion.

The third type was the lorica segmentata. This is the one that movies have popularized and the one that is impossible not to associate with the Roman legionaries. It consisted of armor made of rigid metal plates joined together by pieces of leather. Cheaper to produce than the previous one, it protected formidably against sword strikes thanks to the reinforcements added to the men. Nor was it negligible to avoid cuts and stop arrows and darts. His reduced weight (up to 9 kilos) was an asset.

«The last protection used massively by the Praetorians was the Scale Breastplate or Lorica Squamata», Adds the expert. Its use by the Praetorians would have to be dated from the second half of the 2nd century AD, when it began to spread among the auxiliary troops and, in the long run, it also jumped to the emperor’s guard. “The scale of scales was made by applying small metal pieces, in the form of more or less large scales attached to each other, to a lower piece (of linen or leather), which acted as a base to keep them in position,” he reveals. .
