Breast Plate or Chest Plate, also called Plackart or Cuirass was part of the Roman Medieval Armor.
The musculature of the male torso was idealized in Hellenistic and Roman times in the form of the muscle cuirass, sometimes further embellished with symbolic representation in relief, familiar in the Augustus of Prima Porta and other heroic representations in official Roman sculpture. As parts of the actual military equipment of classic antiquity, cuirasses of bronze, iron, or some other rigid substance were used. Secondary protection for the breast was worn in earlier times by men-at-arms in addition to mail hauberks and reinforced coats. It was not until the 14th century that plate armor became an established part of medieval armor.
