The Stična Breastplate is a 6th Century BCE bronze cuirass from Stična, Slovenia. The cuirass is decorated with anatomical details, not unlike a Greek "muscle cuirass". The breastplate comes from a Halstatt warrior's grave.

This piece is part of the collection of the Museum of Prehistory and Early History (Museum für Vor- und Frühgeschichte), one of the State Museums of Berlin.
