These warriors, sculpted in monoliths, were dressed in a sagum, suit and skirt of iron mesh with short sleeves and a "V" neckline, girded by a belt, a small round and flat caetra shield, a dagger or short sword and wear on their necks a torque with an open ring and a viriae bracelet on each arm, reserved for princes.
