Hi all.  Here is a small enameled fibula from Caesarea Maritima.  As always, any additions or corrections to the description or terminology are appreciated.  Thanks, V-drome.

BCC MA39

Caesarea Maritima
Roman 2nd - 3rd Century CE?
Rectangular bronze plate fibula with two
sections of brick-red enamel separated by
waviform partition.  Rounded triangular end
pieces topped by circular design with incised
concentric circles.  The missing pin was articulated
with a dual plaque hinge and iron axis-pin.  A hooked
pin-catch extends perpendicular from the foot, parallel
to the length of the fibula.

Very nice.  I don't recall ever seeing that shape before, but there are so many varieties of enamelled fibula.

Thank you, Quadrans and Otlichnik!  Joe, your gallery of fibulae, and Shawn's Numiswiki articles are always extremely helpful.

Best regards, Jimi
