In the late 2nd century, the famous roman military belt, "cingulum" or "balteum" changend it´s appearance completely. The belt-plates, known from the earlier empire, were replaced by a new fashion. Characteristic are ring- or rectangular buckles without a thorn or spike, they are visible at many ancient roman funerary monuments of this age. Originals were found at many military forts at the Limes, some of them were published by Jürgen Oldenstein, who also presented some reconstructions. The belts are easy to close: both belt-ends passed through the buckle from behind, then folded back and held in place by a stud on each side.

Our Copy is based on an original of a private collection. The set comprises 1 rectangular buckle and 2 mushroom-shaped studs, all handcrafted from real bronze. Size 48 x 48 mm, leather sold separately.
