gordie_delini Posted February 6, 2006 Share Posted February 6, 2006 With maybe the exception of USC, why are all depictions of Trojans, or anything Roman (i.e. the Senators) always that of a Roman centurion? The Gwinnett Gladiators did a fantastic job at getting away from this. But am I just crazy? I mean, the Trojans were the eventual forefathers for Rome, but they wore different armor, used different weapons, and much different fighting styles. The Senate was a political body, made up of old men. Thats what a Senator is - it comes from the Latin word senex meaning "old man" - so a Senator is "one who sits in the group of old men" essentially. How does a centurion represent that? As for Troy State, clearly this is not a Trojan warrior. The cape was worn only by high ranking officers in the Roman army, to signal rank. Trojan warriors did not even wear capes, let alone the kind of chest armor the Romans had. Does this bother anyone else? Thoughts? Comments? Disagreements? Bring 'em on.
