Although Rome defeated Greece in the year 146 BC, Roman culture was highly influenced by Greek language, education, architecture, philosophy and way of life. The Greek Roman period was also characterized by a number of battles and wars which serves as the influence for the Greek Roman Period Chess set.
Fierce local and international wars characterized the Greek Roman period. Their ferocity is symbolized by the aggressiveness of the Pawn and the Knight. The posture of the King and Queen indicates their unquestionable leadership, while the Bishop reveals his consideration for the imminent battle. Finally, the Castle is a reproduction of a pillar, the basic symbol of the architectural style during the Greek Roman Period.
