Seller's Note/ This is part of a very weird belt system. They link to plain round or dargon-headed rings, or buckle plates, either D-shaped or square with perforated decorations and a loop on one side. They are found in the Balkans, eastern Romania and the Crimea and are generally dated to the second half of the 5th century (but were used into the 6th) and are associated with the Ostrogoths who migrated into the lower Danube at that time from the Crimea region.
