A short sword used by the Romans. They liked the hispanic design of swords so much that they adopted it and increased on the design.
The roman gladius was used mainly for stabbing, as their short profile allowed them to glide quickly through the air and penetrate through armor.
There are four known types of gladius's,
Hispaniesis, Mainz, Fulham, Pompeii.
A breakoff design of the mainz type gladius is called the Mainz-Reingonheim.
