From 190-230 AD, Roman Legionaries commonly wore belts with Latin mottoes spelled out in attached letters. VTERE FELIX (roughly, Happy Life) was the most common. This is a letter E from such a belt. It is just under 1” high, with rounded section members and large serifs. The flat back has rivet stems to attach it to the belt. Detailed information on these belts with illustrations of matching examples is included.
