Belt Mount, Square Plate w Suspension Loop and Cotter Pin

Ave!

Belt Mount, Square Plate type with Suspension Loop and Cotter Pin, c. 1st-2nd Cent.

Copper alloy; 35mm/7.7gm

Con/ intact with green patina, cleaned and waxed.

Ref/ A&L has no exact reference.

Seller's Note/ At first glance this belt mount appears a bit common, even mundane. But if you look closer, you'll see a cotter pin set into the center of the plate. Today, we think that cotter pins are simple and common, but they are just another example of Roman innovation that we all take for granted.
