Late Roman chip carved belt set " marine animal "

 

These beautifully handmade fittings of a late roman belt have elaborate decorations in chip carved

ornamentation with animal friezes on the sides. The animals are interpreted as sea lions, which is

indicated by the fish tails of the mythical creatures. The set consists of a buckle, a pentagonal

counter-fitting, an astragalus tube, a round decorative fitting and an additional strap end. The fully

functional reconstruction is based freely on an original find from Enns / Austria, the ancient city and

fort Lauriacum. The three-part set was found in 1964 in a gravel pit near the military camp.

It is dated to the late 4th century.

 

The length of the fitting is around 11.5 cm, the width around 7.2 cm.

It is attached to the belt leather in an authentic manner with rivets included in the delivery.
