1st century a.D. Roman legionary belt with tinned brass fittings and apron
Authentic replica of a Roman balteus from the Flavian period (second half of the 1st century A.D.). The belt's brass fittings are based on artefacts found near Tekija (Serbia). In the ancient Rome, the balteus (also called cintus) was the waist belt commonly worn by the officers of higher rank. The gladius (sword) was carried on the right side. This belt has pteruges (apron-like straps) and features two round metal plates to accommodate a pugio (dagger).
