Ave!

Avar, Belt Plate with Pendent, c. 6th-7th Century AD

Copper alloy; 36mm / 5.1gm

Con/ As fabricated; one attachement pin, the pendent moves; green patina with open-work lily flower motif, cleaned and waxed.

Seller's Note/ The Avars loved their bling and this is no exception. Such plates were affixed to the back of their belts and would flash, making a jingling sound as they rode along. 

Imagine the jolly and jingling Avars sweeping into your town or village...and burning it to the ground.
