Inventorium Sepulchrale, page 41, note: \It somewhat resembles the Saxon and Frankish girdle ornaments in pl. LVI vol. ii Collectanea Antiqua; and such from the objects found with it I imagine it to have been.- C.R.S.\""Openwork bronze ornament, length 4.5 cm, with traces of tinning. Flat, cut into high-shoulder, broad skirted bell-shape, rather waisted, with square tab at top. Openwork pattern of two irregular half-circles at top, 4 triangles below. Single rivets at top and bottom, length 2mm. Certainly affixed to leather, probably a belt.
