Strap End for Roman Belt, Tekija Design, Tinned Brass
Roman Strap End, Belt Fitting, Tekija Pattern, Tinned Brass
This Roman strap end has been based on finds from the Flavian period (second half of the 1st century A.D.). The original piece, found in Serbia near Tekija / Tekije (part of the province of Pannonia in Ancient Rome) belonged to the leather apron of a Roman Legionary's cingulum or balteus. These aprons consisted of several flat strips of leather (so-called pteryges or pteruges) hanging from the belt and were finished with continuous rows of metal fittings. Each strap terminated with metal pendants.
This authentic replica of a Roman ornamental belt fitting is crafted from 2 mm thick brass and tin-plated. It is composed of an amphora -shaped pendant and a rectangular, clamp-like attachment with rivet holes. This belt strap end is perfectly suited for your own DIY project or as replacement/spare parts for Roman belts, for example our Roman balteus based on Tekije finds (Product No. 1616672700). Mounting hardware is not included in delivery.
An ideal accessory for Roman re-enactment.
