Messala Severus' (Toby Kebbell) and Pontius Pilate's (Pilou Asbaek) hero costumes from Timur Bekmambetov's biblical remake Ben-Hur. Messala and his brother Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston) raced their deadly chariots to the amusement of Pontius Pilot.
Both costumes consist of black leatherette, resin, and faux metal Roman armor labeled "Hero" with eagle insignias, shoulder pads, and skirts. Messala's set includes greaves, elbow pads, a leather belt, a prop sickle, a purple robe labeled "Messala", and a pair of metal-studded leather boots, while Pilot's includes trousers, a red robe, a purple cloak, and a pair of wraparound armbands, several with Pieroni Bruno labels marked "Pilato Attore". The costumes are in good overall condition with minor signs of wear and age throughout.
