These are two of the Vulci aristocrat's three bronze belts. One is of an old-fashioned lozenge shape. It would have been originally fastened to a broad leather backing and have looked rather like a modern weightlifting belt. This is fine ropousse decoration on both belts: geometric patterns of bosses and lines are supplemented with images of sundisks and rays, horses, and dancing men. Vulci, 42F
