Roman Ladies Zoomorphic Dragon Hair Pin c.1st-3rd Cent
Iron: 38mm/4.1gm, broken with red/orange patina.
Unlike the elegant copper bird hair pins favored by most Roman women, this lady chose to stick an iron dragon-headed pin in her hair. Yikes! Was she an Amazon? Just askin'...
We see lots of these on eBay, advertised as 'voting sticks' at exorbitant high prices. They are NOT voting sticks but rather simple hair pins.
Our price for these charming, decorative and collectable hair pins is just right.
