From Trajan's column - the severed heads of Dacians presented to Trajan himself.  it seems the presentation of decapitated heads to the emperor himself was standard protocol. There are echoes of Pompey’s head being presented to Caesar and Cicero’s head to Antony.

Dacian King Decebalus. • When Trajan came to power, he invaded Dacia to weaken its threat to Roman border territory. Decebalus was defeated. He remained in power as a client king, but continued to assert his independence, leading to a final and overwhelming Roman invasion in 105. Trajan reduced the Dacian capital Sarmizegetusa in 106, absorbing Dacia into the Empire. Decebalus committed suicide to avoid capture.

Trajan Column XVII (25) 62 detail- Decebalus conducting the first battle from his vantage point.   Among the most impressive scenes of the battle is the “Carrying of the injured Dacian youth”. The group around the wounded youth seems to be a product of  Hellenistic pattern books.  Such groups occur often on sarcophagi. The composition is in a pyramid form, with Decebalus being at the top of the pyramid.

Decebalus scene on Column of Trajan. Depicts Dacian commander Decebalus committing suicide by a tree. The Romans admired his death, because he refused to die at the hands of the Romans.
