Genava55 Posted November 3, 2022 Author Report Share Posted November 3, 2022 8 hours ago, Ultimate Aurelian said: Not really evidence but i read the Mars of Todi was dedicated by someone with a Celtic name (Ahal Trutitis); although not sure if it's supposed to be scale (It is also interpeted as lamellar or even cloth armor) It is lamellar and probably leather. It fits the description of the word "lorica" by Varro: "Lorica 'corselet', because they made chest-protectors from lora 'thongs' of rawhide" If the dedicant is possibly a Celt, it is written in Umbrian and the conception is Etruscan. Celtic individuals have married Etruscans, it is clear that Celtic people lived among Etruscans, Latins, Umbrians and Samnites during the 5th and 4th century BC.
