Roman Armor & Clothing

All troopers wore a helmet of steel and brass (300074) plus body armor, either a lorica segmentata (300176), made of steel lames or a lorica hamata, made of steel mail with shoulder doublings.

As for the undergarments, very few articles were worn. There are examples of a loincloth or loose short being worn underneath and of course a long tunic (100042) overtop. During festivals and stately occasions a Roman would not be without his robes or toga which replicated the beautiful free flowing designs of the Greeks. Finally leather sandals (200254) were the common accessory to complete any Roman’s outfit.
