12 III CENTURY BALDRIC
Baldric III century
In the IIIrd. Century the long sword (Spatha) was the main weapon of the legions, and the short Gladius was almost abandoned. To hang this long swords, the romans used wide leather baldrics, as we can see in the tombstones of the era, and also in several archeological finds, the metal parts all over Europe and Africa, and also the leather parts in Vimose (Denmark). This baldric is based in a generic model, some examples were found in Carlisle, Zugmantel and the actual Morocco. The phalerae and terminal are made in solid brass.
