comment Are the swords in the Oath of Horatii all Roman?
I can't really be sure about it, but I doubt it, since the fight against Alba Longa took place around the 7th century BC, where Rome was still a relatively small nation. Actually, not even the middle one looks like a roman weapon to me, since the gladius as the main sword-type was a short-sword about 30 inches of length. But I am not an expert on this topic. edit I just noticed, that about that time, the gladius wasn't even "in service". The Romans started to use it in the 4th century BC

I wouldn't actually call it "artistic license", it's more of a message, that a lot of people interpret differently. A common view for example is that only one sword is displayed straight, because only one of the brothers would survive the fight against the Curiatii.

@quant_dev oh my god. I didn't know that. I will have a look if I can find the original german speech and write a summary.

Thank you for your answer. Interesting point and link about Tacitus, thanks. I'm accepting this answer now, altough I was hoping to maybe get a bit more about alternative theories :)
