The Golden Eagle was called ‘Aquila’ by the ancient Romans who regarded the bird as the symbol of Rome’s power and supremacy. The image of the eagle was born as a standard before every Roman legion. Made of silver or gold and always with extended wings, it often held a thunderbolt and since the age of Marius, (circa 157 - 86 BC), had become the signum of the whole Roman army.
