Lucius Artorius Castus (mid-late 2nd century AD or early-to-mid 3rd century AD) was a Roman military commander. A member of the gens Artoria (possibly of Messapic or Etruscan origin), he has been suggested as a potential historical basis for King Arthur. What is known of Artorius comes from inscriptions on fragments of a sarcophagus, and a memorial plaque, found in Podstrana, on the Dalmatian coast in Croatia. Although the inscriptions cannot be precisely dated, Lucius Artorius Castus probably served in the Roman army sometime between the mid-late 2nd century AD or early-to-mid 3rd century AD.

I'm blown away by these preview / prototype pictures. It's looking very good indeed :)

The attention to detail is simply amazing and the finished work looks stunning. Certainly museum quality replica (limited to 700 pieces worldwide)

This is such a beautiful piece :)
