Another component carried by a Roman soldier in addition to his Sarcina, was his Loculus. This was his personal leather satchel. The Loculus was similar in design and use to a much later version of the haversack. A Roman soldier carried his private items (even monies), inside his Loculus. It was worn on a strap and carried over the shoulder (resting on the hip). The Loculus was not an issued item, and was paid for by the Soldier.
