This is one of a pair of Bronze Roman Soldiers, produced with a remarkable detail in their armor and sandals. The patina is very beautifully preserved, there are no repairs and the detail of the mold is extraordinarily fine. The first one here is in an attack position with a dagger or scabbard drawn. Each weighs 10 lbs. and this one is 17 inches tall with a base of 6 3/8 inches. This was likely produced in the late 1800s in my opinion, under the base can be seen exposed copper but on the surface there is no copper exposure or damage to the surface of the piece. There is no mark to identify the country of origin. This piece is magnet negative, and there are no areas of oxidation or corrosion on the surface.
