Lorica is a common name for the armor that protected the torso. In a broader sense — any means of protection. For example, a lorica could be called a wall, fortifications, or hedge. Lorics were actively used in the Roman army, and not only ordinary legionaries, but also officers — centurions, legates, etc. Depending on the period of Roman history and the rank of an officer, the type of armor could vary greatly. The following varieties of lorik are known:


Lorica lintea, Lorica musculata, Lorica plumata, Lorica segmentata, Lorica squamata, Lorica hamata, Legionnaire, Centurion, Legate
