Bronze fibula

Fibula of cruciform shape. The crossbar is straight and is flattened with a lacy ornament along the top facet. The vertical member is shaped like a skythe in its half length and arched to the other half and attached, arc upwards, to the middle of the crossbar. At either end of the crossbar spherical knobs with a ring in their base are attached, while another knob with a ring is shaped in the vertical member at the point where it meets the crossbar. The pin, being attached in the middle of the crossbar, lies parallel to the vertical member and slides into the fold of the catch-plate.
