Lorica Squamata armor is typically depicted in the Roman Republican Military, as well as the later Roman Empire. It often seems to have been an armor for distinguised soldiers such as Centurions, Standard Bearers and Musicians. It also may have been a common armor for some Auxilia troops at certain times and locations in the Empire. The scales were typically thin, with a typical thickness of .5 - .8 mm, perhaps to keep the weight of the armor from being overbearing, yet still thick enough ensure that it was very difficult to cut into.
