Description

Armor made of a bronze sheet, formed by two parts, pectorale– originally worn on the chest – and humerale – worn on the back – held by rectangular bronze strips placed on the shoulders. The strips were clasped through joints and rings. Both the parts are three-foiled and have three discs on relief, two on top and one at the bottom; each disc is decorated with embossed studs. The top is folded outwards and cut with a zig-zag motif.
Three-disc armors are found spread around southern Abruzzi, but rarely come directly from excavations or contexts that are documented.
They are generally considered by scholars as a development from the previous single disc-armor, found commonly during the Orientalizing and the Archaic Period (end of the 8th century BC – end of the 5th century BC).
This armor was found in a tomb, discovered in 1969 at Casaccio, a place in the southern suburbs of Spoltore, during the works for rebuilding the sports field. It was recovered together with other grave goods, such as fine ware, a small bronze colander and a broad bronze belt (Samnite type).
