Reconstruction of the balteus – the belt of the Roman legionary of the second half 1st – early 2nd Century AD

The article is devoted to the reconstruction of the belts of the Roman legionnaires of the Principate period, in particular those that could be used by Roman soldiers in the Northern Black Sea coast. From this region, archaeological finds of parts of the Roman belts (baltei) originate, which allow the reproduction of the production technology and the appearance of such belts when drawing analogies from neighboring regions. The article presents two belts reproduced on the basis of findings from the region.
