Roman Centurions
A soldier had to be well connected to become a Centurion in the Roman Army. In addition to having to be reasonably literate, proven in battle and of at least thirty years of age, he had to have several letters of recommendation from senior figures in the Roman social hierarchy before being awarded officer status. Only then could the centurion take command of his 100 Romans. The initial derivation of the title is obvious, although a Roman Century later came to represent first 60, then 80, men. Roman Centurions had the privilege of riding horseback into battle. Despite their rank they suffered a heavy casualty rate given their willingness to fight alongside their ‘legionnaires’ on the battlefield.

Maintenance
As with all cast iron products, this statue will continue to gently develop its own unique patina. Depending on positioning and environment, this can include mossing and general weathering. In order to begin this process, we store these statues outside. As rust forms its own seal, decades of service are ensured. Whilst a weathered look is generally preferred, a uniform finish can be achieved by priming and spraying or painting as required.
