These archaeological artefacts related to the Roman commander of an exceptional military career, also make part of the legend of King Arthur. The first to propose this thesis was the British scholar Malone (1924), nowadays to be confirmed by scientific research of Littleton, Malcor, Mathews, Gidlow, Green, among others.
