In these places, snakes are not scary or evil; quite the opposite, snakes are guardian deities and bringers of abundance. Visiting the Naples Archaeological Museum and exploring ruins of Pompeii with kids, look for snake paintings. In ancient Roman religion, there were different gods for every occasion. Protective deities, the Lares, sons of the god Mercury, became an essential element of household shrines.
Lares are represented in figurines and paintings as young guys in tunics, carrying drinking horns. Were guardian deities in ancient Roman religion that. Snakes as an attribute of protection. Snakes, often accompanying the Lares, are also symbols of good fortune and guardian deities that protect the home, shop, neighborhood, or temple. In household shrine niches, offerings of fruit and eggs were brought for the snake deities, and some murals show snakes eating the offerings.ALSO NOTICE THE ATTENTION TO DETAILS ON THE TWO BOARS TUSK ON THE ONE ARM GUARD. BOARS WERE SEEN AS A MIGHTY ANIM, AL IN ANCIENT ROME AND MANY ROMAN LEGIONS TOOK THE BOAR AS ONE OF THEIR LEGIONS SYMBOLS. THE TWO CROSSED SHIELDS ON EITHER SIDE OF THE BRESTPLATE WAS SOMETHING DONE TO MARK THE BATTLE GROUND AS A PLACE OF VICTORY OR TROPHY.
THE TWO FACES SEEN ON THE BOTTOM OF THE BREATPLATE COULD REPRESENT THE GOD JANUS WHO HAD TWO FACES. THE CROCODILE ARMOR SEEN BEHIND THE RIGHT GREAVE WAS A REAL THING IN THE TIME OF ANCIENT ROME. A COMPLETE SUIT OF CROCODILE ARMOR WAS FOUND PRESERVED IN EGYPT A FEW YEARS AGO DATED TO THE TIME OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE.
