Romano - Celtic Bronze fibula
Ca. 1st century AD.
A bronze fibula with a triangular-shaped footplate that anchors the piece. This footplate culminates in a distinctive knob, its rounded contours adding a touch of refinement to the overall composition. At either side of the ribbed plaque, knob protrusions emerge, their presence lending a tactile dimension to the fibula's design. This ribbed plaque, a canvas for visual and tactile exploration, adds depth and texture to the artefact. The bar head plate, a unifying element of the fibula's structure, serves as an axis around which the pin and catchplate revolve. Fibulas, like this bronze example, played a vital role in the sartorial culture of the time. Originating from the Romano-Celtic world, these clasps served as both functional closures and ornamental accents. As attire fasteners, they embraced practicality, ensuring garments remained secure.
