Cingulum militare or Balteus buckle the romans called the war belt, with which their soldiers tied their tunics. The military belt as well served as recognition and identified its owner as a member of the legion and active soldier. 

To emphasize its importance the belt was decorated lavishly. The legionary had to look carefully wearing the belt during duties and never losing it.

The template discovered in a legionary camp Vindonissa in Switzerland is part of an original ancient roman belt and was copied carefully. You purchase a accessory for a belt in mirror polish - buckle with decorated fixing plate - like the romans wore proudly during campaigns since the times of the 1st century AD. Casted of real bronze it mirrors the style of that epoch.
