48 Romans and Germanics

Display Case 48
Razor (1)

Objects of Roman origin in local graves indicate trade contacts as well as conflicts between Romans and Germanic tribes. The razor with a lion's head must have been acquired by a Germanic mercenary in Roman military service and taken home as a souvenir when he was discharged. The melted parts of a ladle and a sieve were parts of a Roman wine service.
