This simple piece of basic clothing of a Roman soldier was a broad piece of linen used to “cinque” up a Tunica (Tunic). Similar to a Cumberbun, it was designed to help gather up the loose sides of the “one-sized” Tunica – to give a better appearance when worn. The Ventralis was more popular with Roman Officers and NCOs. Colors varied greatly and their were no set regulations for them.
