A short sword used by the Romans. They liked the hispanic design of swords so much that they adopted it and increased on the design.


The roman gladius was used mainly for stabbing, as their short profile allowed them to glide quickly through the air and penetrate through armor.
There are four known types of gladius's,

Hispaniesis, Mainz, Fulham, Pompeii.

A breakoff design of the mainz type gladius is called the Mainz-Reingonheim.

My valiant gladius was in Emily's scabbard, if you know what I mean.

A short sword used by the Romans approx. 44 inches in length. It was used for stabbing but was pretty good for slashing too. The broad triangular tip shows that it was made for stabbing.

Something random, unexpected, and strange. Usually said when someone makes a comment so moronic, it doesn't deserve a meaningful response.
"Hey, I'm hungry. Arby's is good." said John. "WTF? That is so gladius." said Billy.
