  2. Indeed. that's why you need use something similar to my suggestion. The Capitoline She-wolf (Italian: Lupa capitolina) takes its name from its location—the statue is housed in the Capitoline Museums in Rome. The She-wolf statue is a fully worked bronze composition that is intended for 360 degree viewing. In other words the viewer can get an equally good view from all directions: there is no "correct" point of view. The She-wolf is depicted standing in a stationary pose. The body is out of proportion, because its neck is much too long for its face and flanks. The incised details of the neck show thick, s-curled fur which ends with unnatural beads around the face and behind the forelegs. The wolf’s body is leaner in front than in the rear: its ribs are visible, as are the muscles of its forelegs, while in the back the musculature is less detailed, suggesting less tone. Its head curves in towards its tail; the ears curve back. The children themselves have a more dynamic posture: one sits with his feet splaying to either side, while the other kneels beside him. Both face upwards. They, too, are lean, with no trace of baby fat. https://www.khanacademy.org/humanities/ancient-art-civilizations/roman/roman-republic/a/capitoline-she-wolf
  3. it would be better something similar to the third in this image, and is better use color fill than outlines or strokes.
  4. Axumites or Kushites , or Medieval Ethiopians?
  5. the image is very detailed, for the place where they want to use it.
  6. you are the reenactor about Roman late era?
  7. you are making Imperial Romans or Republicans? I thought they were making the Romans from the republican age, not from the Augustus era until the Flavian dynasty. It would look better for a Siracusan faction.
  8. Pegasus isn't exclusive symbol. http://www.forumancientcoins.com/moonmoth/pegasos_coins.html you can use others. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roma_(mythology) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/She-wolf_(Roman_mythology) http://www.calgarycoin.com/reference/myth/myroma.htm it would be a shame if you chose to represent pegaso as a symbol of the Roman republic.
