3rd 4thC Roman Dura Europa Dagger

Based on an excavated dagger example from Dura Europa.  This form of scabbard was common to 3rd and 4thC of the Roman Empire and consisted of a bronze front plate and leather liner with a curious shaped single edged blade.

Interestingly the plate and tang button are very similar to those found on Migration Era seaxs a few centuries later and also worn horizontally.
