Details

A ‘Signifer’ was the standard bearer of a Roman Legion. He carried the ‘Signum’ (standard) for a cohort or century. As each century had its own Signifer that meant there were approximately 59 in a whole Legion. The ‘Signum’ had a number of disks or medallions along with other elements mounted on a long pole. The pole itself would often be ‘topped’ with a hand-shaped ‘manus’ denoting the oath of loyalty taken by soldiers when they first enlisted. A wreath of honour world usually surround the ‘manus’ (hand) ‘Signifers’ would also carry a small decorated round shield (a buckler) and wore a wolf or bearskin on top of their helmets and body armour.
