timo, I find that I must disagree with you upon a particular point:
I know of no evidence that the Roman scutum was ever a true square, although
I must admit that I have not seriously studied the matter to be able to say
so with absolute certainty.
Every example of the scutum I remember seeing in my studies to date make it
an obvious rectangle, narrower in width than it is in the height dimension.
