ARMAMENTA

ARMAMENTA in a general sense, signified any kind of implements or utensils (Plin. Nat. 17.152, 18.112), but was more particularly applied to the tackle of a ship, sails, ropes, cables, anchor, &c. (Plaut. Merc. 1.2, 64; Liv. 21.49, 9, 33.48, 8; Caes. Gal. 4.29; Quint. 10.7.23.) Sometimes the sails (vela) are mentioned as distinct from the armamenta. (Caes. Gal. 3.14; Liv. 36.44; Sen. Ben. 6.15.) [NAVIS]
