Bronze. These fragments were found in 1936 among charred bones within the burial urn. The largest piece, put together from nine fragments, terminates in a hook. It is made of 2 sheets of bronze ornamented with repousse dot circles and placed back to back. Edges are rolled back. Another fragment consisted of a strip ornamented with lengthwise grooves, which is enlarged at one end and attached by 2 large rivets to another grooved strip, which was perhaps the other end of the central ornament. This may be beginning of bronze covering of the belt proper of which another smaller fragment is preserved.
Purchased from Francesco Mancinelli-Scotti, 1896
