One incredible luck for dacian archaeology: in 1965, in Philippi (Greece) was discovered a tombstone of a roman officer. It turned out to be the leader of the unit that was tasked by the emperor Trajan to track down Decebalus, the last of the dacian kings! You can see that, even if he had a long military career (revealed by the inscription), his most important achievement was that from the Dacian Wars, sculpted on the upper part of the stone, a carving similar to that frim the Trajan's…

The Romans were terrified of the Dacians weapons. Their preferred sword was the single edged falcata: capable of severing limbs with a single blow. Perhaps their most dreaded weapon was the war scythe. The Romans had to adapt gladiator armor to counter it   The Dacian war scythe was known as a falx; the falcata was a Spanish weapon.  Dacian swords were short and doubled-edged, presumably based on the gladius or the xiphos.
