Roman Horn Cornu
Communication during battle could be difficult, if not out-right impossible with the noise and the chaos. The Romans devised a way to do so, though, utilizing this Horn Cornu to encode a generals orders into signals and broadcast them over the field.
This impressive instrument consists of an exceedingly long horn that is curved into a rough, G shape, which allows the cornican, or horn-blower, to carry most of the instruments weight on his shoulder. Roman Horn Cornu also features a cross-bar that keeps the instrument rigid, here represented as a hardwood grip that stretches across the horns gap. This cross-bar also gives the cornican a good place to hold the instrument, supporting its weight even further.
This Roman Horn Cornu is an impressive example of Roman ingenuity at its finest, offering a quick and easy solution to communicating even over the noisy din of battle with loud, clear, and concise sounds, all stemming from this incredible instrument.
