Roman Brass Decorative with Apron Belt
Let us take you back to the days of the Roman Empire! Relive the days of the Roman Gladiators and Roman Soldiers with this replica of
an authentic Roman Apron Belt.
The plate covered belt popularly called a Cingulum, or Balteus. In the midifirst century AD, a single belt to support the dagger was most common. It is clear that the Balteus was a valuable personal posession. Although made in the army workshops & probably a required item of equipment, it was perhaps not issued at random but more carefully chosen by the soldier according to his tastes, & budget.
The fittings of this Mid-first Century Roman Brass Decorative Apron Belt are made in brass, or Orichalcom, as called by the Romans.
The high quality decorative fittings, have been carefully rounded at the edges to avoid any accidents. The plates & the fittings are riveted to the leather belt, no wider than the plate themselves.
