Information

Fibula of navicella shape with variant decoration: transverse bands around both ends of bow, a longitudinal band of hatching over the centre bordered by grooved lines. Much of the surface is thus left plain, and the decoration is so deeply grooved (cast) that it distorts the profile of the bow. Missing: catch, tip of pin
