...According to the best Latin dictionary that I could lay my hands on, "opima spolia" means "the arms taken on the field of battle by the victorious from the vanquished general, the spoils of honor". Also, in general, "the arms taken from an enemy's general in single combat". "Opima" as a noun, means "honorable spoils"...
