Lorica (Latin: lorica) - a general name for armor that protected the torso. In a broader sense - any means of protection. For example, a wall, fortifications, or a fence could be called a lorica. Loricas were actively used in the Roman army, not only by ordinary legionnaires, but also by officers - centurions, legates, etc. Depending on the period of Roman history and the rank of the officer, the subtype of armor could change significantly. The following types of lorica are known:
