The Roman Eagle

By October 5, 2005

Follow me on:

A research question from the Ancient/Classical History forum:
    "Did the eagle stand for the Roman empire and if so, did its graphical representation instill fear and respect in the ordinary man on the street, like the Nazi eagle did in 1940s Germany? In other words, was the power of the empire invested in a symbol which was universally recognized as the imprimatur of the realm?
Do you have an answer? Please post in the Roman Eagle discussion thread.
