Famous centurion stick

Famous centurion stick

The famous centurion stick – vitis, a sign of function, a punishment tool. It was made of vine wood, and it was implemented during the Punic wars. It was about 0, 9 meters long. Tacitus mentions that one of the centurions received the nickname Cedo Alteram (“give me another”), because of the continuous breaking of the stick.
