What is a Pilum?

The Pilum was a javelin commonly used by the Roman Army in ancient times, thrown at enemies to pierce armor before engaging in hand-to-hand combat. Essentially, it was used to disrupt a threat before swords were drawn. Once it pierced a shield, it rendered it ineffective.

When swords couldn’t reach, and shields no longer protected, Roman soldiers relied on the pilum. Today, you can rely on us, Pilum Defense Agency, for all your Investigation needs.
