I left off the s in scutum, and Duo didn't catch it

Why can't you use scutum as a noun in general, as it is a type of shield in modern English? Like I could say I have a scutum, and that's perfectly fine, because it's specifically the Roman scutum... I think "Minverva has a scutum" should be accepted.
