    Schwert Bund 2741.jpg
    2000th anniversary of the battle in the Teutoburger Wald (forest),
    issued June 4th,2009.Two versions exist,one with water-activated
    gum and (shown) one self-adhesive.
    This battle,the exact location of it is not known,ended the advances
    of the Romans in Germania.
    The Romans,lead by Quintilius Varus were beaten by Arminius the
    Cherusk (Arminius´ identity is not historical proven) completely.
    The surviving Romans fled,Varus committed suicide by "throwing
    himself into his sword".
    The stamp shows a roman rider´s protective iron-mask of the time,
    the head of Augustus and the top of the Hermann-Monument,
    near the believed site of the battle.
    (Hermann = German,Arminius = Latin)
    The monument was dedicated in 1875.One of several huge monuments,
    that were built to celebrate the unification of Germany in 1871.
    The sword of Hermann is 7 meters long.
