Dating back to the 1st-2nd century CE, these are real Ancient Roman scale mail (lorica squamata) plates!
Used by the Roman military, lorica squamata was made from metal plates tiled onto a fabric backing.
The word "Squamata" may sound familiar - it's the Latin name for the largest order of lizards!
Price is per plate and they come in a labeled, protective, 1" diameter gem jar for easy and safe display.
PRICE IS PER SPECIMEN and they can be shipped worldwide.
