The cingulim, or belt, was a soldier's badge of office, worn with the tunic at all times. The "apron" of decorated leather strips gave some protection to the groin in battle. Also, the jangling noise made by the apron when the legionaries marched helped to intimidate the enemy. The belt served 3 primary purposes for the Roman soldier:
1. It held all of his weapons and equipment together.
2. It was used to tie his robes so that he would not trip going into battle.
3. It was ornamental, displaying medals or awards for heroism in battle.
