Best known from Trajan's Column in Rome, which commemorates Trajan's victory over the Dacians and the incorporation of Dacia into the Empire, the Dacians were a difficult opponent. During the reign of the emperor Domitian the Dacians butchered a Roman army and forced the Romans to negotiate a peace treaty. Famed for their use of the deadly falx, a three foot haft with a sickle like blade on the end, the Dacian warbands also used javelins and spears, supported by archers. The Dacian cavalry was supplemented by troops from the neighboring Sarmatian tribes and included Sarmatian cataphracts - armored men on armored horses.
