Sol Invictus gauntlets

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Sol Invictus gauntlets are a powerful pair of gauntlets in Dragon Quest IX. They are the final form of the Vesta gauntlets and the most protective pair of gauntlets in the game. However, unlike many other rare pieces of equipment in the game, they have no special effects aside from the high amount of defence they provide.

These gauntlets are named after Sol Invictus, the official sun god of the late Roman empire. His name in Latin means "unconquered sun". In the original Japanese version, the gauntlets are named after Amaterasu, the goddess of the sun in Japanese mythology.
