Glory to the Empire
Pewter SPQR Roman Eagle Pendant
No man, not even a great one, can live forever. Empires are man's creation, and thus suffer from the same fatal flaw; they are not immortal. Mortality adds the spark needed for greatness, and Rome burned oh so brightly!
A living empire does not thrive without a great military, and the Romans were without equal in their time. The tall Roman war standard bearing the glorious eagle and the letters SPQR (Senatus Populusque Romanus) was the harbinger of destruction for any foes unlucky enough to face the Roman war machine on the field of battle.
Armed-to-the-teeth, efficient, cunning, and brutal...the Roman legions swept across the known world with terrifying force. Though thousands strong and seamlessly unified, the true power of the legion lay with courage, dedication, and skill of the individual. The unbreakable backbone of the Roman army was the soldier.
The deadly dance of ancient war happened man-to-man, face-to-face, and the Roman soldier trained to kill or be killed. Weakness was certain death. Grueling ordeals to build stamina and ferret out the weak were a pillar of military life; they forged fearsome men. The sight of a Roman charging onto the riverbank after a long swim in full armor was enough to brek the fighting spirit of even the most eager opponent.
The ancient Roman soldiers, their Emperors, and their enemies are all dust now...long gone, but not forgotten. The towering achievements of the Roman Empire remain untarnished by the sands of time; deeds speak long after men fall silent. Eternal glory belongs to the Senate and People of Rome!
Proudly made in the USA and Canada. Guaranteed for life.
Our highly-detailed pendant captures the Roman Standard as it was on the field of battle, so many ages ago. The pendant is cast in lead-free pewter and is 1" x 1" and about two quarters thick (0.14"). It is strung with an 18-inch black leather cord (2-mm thick) or whatever length you request. The lobster-style stainless steel clasp is the easiest one to use that we could find; we wear what we make. Each pendant comes in a black velvet pouch and includes a poem card insert.
