Bio:

Made with leather strips and sometimes filled with iron plates or fitted with blades or spikes, and used as weapons. Caestūs are a boon to boxer and back alley ruffian alike.

The first caestūs in Greece were series of leather thongs tied over the hand for use in boxing-like competitions. Roman variants included the myrmex (or “limb-piercer”) and others featuring various iron plates, spikes, or studs
