Cornicen
1st century AD

A first century cornicen. His armour and helmet are covered in a wolf skin. He would usually also carry a small circular shield.

The cornicen is one of the trumpeters of the legion. In battle he would use his horn, called the cornu, to draw the attention of the soldiers to any new order being signalled.
