Most of the men are wearing the usual tunic, with some also sporting a cloak The figures are armed with various weapons and shields. Weapons include javelins, swords and bows, but the weapon that marked these people out from most others, and which seems to have been genuinely feared by the Romans, was the falx.
The Dacians were a Thracian people who were the ancient inhabitants of the cultural region of Dacia, located in the area near the Carpathian Mountains and west of the Black Sea. This area includes mainly the present-day countries of Romania and Moldova, as well as parts of Ukraine, Eastern Serbia, Northern Bulgaria, Slovakia, Hungary and Southern Poland. The Dacians spoke the Dacian language, a sub-group of Thracian, but were somewhat culturally influenced by the neighbouring Scythians and by the Celtic invaders of the 4th century BC,
