Dacian wars

The Dacian Wars - here the Dacians made use of the Falx, a large curve-bladed sword with a single edge on the inside curve. This two handed sword had superb cutting ability and it's impact on the Roman helmets of the time led to a later improving addition of reinforced forehead plates.
