Roman Breastplate- Muscle Cuirass
The Roman Breastplate, also known as the muscle cuirass or heroic cuirass, is a type of armor designed for the torso and intended to imitate a romanticized male figure. It first appeared in Greece, becoming widespread throughout the 5th and 4th centuries B.C.E. Though originally made from hammered bronze, boiled leather became commonly used. It typically depicted in Greek and Roman symbols and was worn by generals and emperors. Archaeological finds indicate that simpler cuirass armor was worn under combat situations, but artistically decorated versions were found as well. This leather cuirass is ornately decorated, representative of original officer armor from the Roman army.
