A Praetorian pilum spear from Ridley Scott's 2000 Oscar®-winning action epic Gladiator.
Betrayed by his Emperor’s son Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) and sold into slavery, Roman general Maximus (Russell Crowe) finds his calling in the arena as a gladiator. But when a festival of games begins in Commodus’ honour, Maximus returns to Rome with thoughts of revenge for his lost Emperor and family.
This spear and others like it were made for the production and were carried by soldiers at the opening battle against the Germanic tribe. The long handle is made of wood and the spear tip is made of black resin with a metal armature. The handle and tip can be separated.
There is some wear from production use, including some scratches and scuffs, but it otherwise remains in an excellent condition.
