The Germanic Museum has recently received from Mr. Henry W. Putnam '69, of Boston, a plaster cast of a statue of a Roman soldier--a companion figure to the statue of the Frankish warrior which has been in the Museum since its opening. This new plaster cast, like the old one, is from the Romisch Germanisches Museum at Mainz. Like the Frankish warrior, it is equipped with exact reproductions of arms, the originals of which are in the possession of the Mainz museum. Together the two figures give a very interesting illustration of the way in which Roman military art influenced the early Germanic life.
