Dagger Fighting with a "Geek God" (clip right) --> We've learned that in Roman and Greek mythology, the Parazonium Dagger was frequently carried by Virtus, particularly on early representations. We have also learned that it was also sometimes carried by Mars, or Roma, or the Emperor, whomever required "the aura of courage". Yet if we want to know how to actually wield it, use it, and so on... we had better seek a higher authority! Once again we invite you to worship with us none other than the ever so knowledgeable "Geek God of YouTube", the one and Holy, LindyBeige! :)
Daggers of many shapes and sizes were used by Roman soldiers as a sidearm. It seems likely that the a variety of daggers were intended as auxiliary or backup weapons, but the dagger found many uses. Many knives such as the Roman Pugio were often highly decorated and were clearly a status symbol. So too were the Greek Parazonium; considered a symbol of rank, the Parazonium was was often held high by field officers and used to rally the troops before and during battles.
