                                            Roman Phalerae, tinned brass

A phalera was a gold, silver, or bronze sculpted disk worn on the breastplate during parades by Roman soldiers who had been awarded it as a medal or trophy.

Roman military units could also be awarded phalerae for distinguished conduct in action. These awards were often mounted on the staffs of the unit's standards.

The phalerae offered here are, comparable to originals, mounted on a leather strap framework that is applied like a vest and is fastened at the back with straps and buckles. At the clavicles there are two thin straps attached, to which a red woollen scarf, the Focale, will be constricted. In the lower loops of the Focale, two tinned torc, also military decoration, are hooked in.
