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.

Dacian koson - It is a coin surrounded by mystery. Even though it is Dacian, it has greek writing imprinted on it, as well as Roman symbols and its gold seems to come from the Balkans. Moreover, it can be found ONLY on the Dacian territory. One of the theories claims that, before the death of Burebista, Brutus (monogram?) gave kosons to the Dacian mercenaries that he hired for some wars in the Balkan area. A curious thing about a coin of its age is that it has no leader's face imprinted on…

The draco ("dragon" or "serpent", plural dracontes) was a military standard of the Roman cavalry. The draco may have been introduced to the Roman cavalry by Sarmatian units in the 2nd century. The dragon was originally a Dacian emblem. According to Fiebiger the Romans adopted it from the Dacians, after their defeat or from the Parthians.

The Dacian Draco was the standard and ensign of troops of the ancient Eastern European Dacian people, which can be seen in the hands of the soldiers of Decebalus in several scenes depicted on Trajan's Column in Rome, Italy.
