The Roman Pompeii style gladius represents the first major change to the Roman sword since it was adopted from the Spanish ''Gladius Hispaniensis'' during the early Republic. This thinner style blade was used almost exclusively for thrusting at the chest, belly and groin of the enemy, but could still deliver a respectable cut if required to do so.
