Scutum, Tazeta... Who What Now?
The Scutum constellation was based on a more modern figure than most constellations, being named for King Jan III Sobiesk (where the Saint gets his name), after his successful battles. Scutum is Latin for Shield, though the naming of Tateza is an odd choice for the movie.
He Should Have Gone With "A"
While not appearing in the manga and anime, the Tateza Silver Cloth appeared in the first Saint Seiya movie, Evil Goddess Eris. Jan was a revived Saint (aka a Ghost Saint), and was given this version of the Cloth. In the end, it was damaged and left behind, the ghost having been beaten.
Once Again, Making Us Ask Why The Dragon Shield Is Special
This is the original design of the Tateza Silver Cloth as done by Masami Kurumada. Jan likely earned the cloth many years prior to the series, and had it returned, in an altered state, after his revival. Like most Silver Cloth's original forms, it covers a decent amount of the body, between Bronze Cloths and Gold Cloths. The Cloth seems to have a large, powerful shield, that surpasses even the Bronze Dragon Shield. The Cloth was last seen as Jan was defeated.

For the DVD release of the movie the Cloth received the "Scutum" name in the accompanying booklet.
- The Cloth has only been stated to originally be Silver due to that Masami Kurumada designed the original version of the Cloth which was refined for the movie, and that both the Lyra and Sagitta Cloths that were made for the movie were incorporated into the Original story.
