The Roman Army was the almost exclusive users of the lorica segmentata or the plate armor. However, the first time the lorica segmentata name for plate armor was used was in the 16th century. The armor itself is made of broad ferrous strips fastened to internal leather straps. The strips were arranged horizontally on the body of the Roman army soldier and were overlapping downwards until they surrounded the torso in two halves then fastened at the front and back. The upper body and shoulders were protected by additional strips and breast as well as back plates. The form of the armor allowed it to be stored compactly since it was possible to separate it into four sections. The fittings that held the plate sections together were, on the other hand, made of brass. In later variants however, in the later part of the 1st century AD, the fittings were simplified. Bronze hinges were removed in favor for simple rivets, belt fastenings utilized small hooks and the lowest two girdle plates were replaced by one broad plate around the 1st century.
