I want to share one intresting fibula.Unfortunatly was bent and some of the enamel is not there any more .Coins at the site suggest dating around 100-250 AD .Am I right?I could not find exact match in Internet . Is it just me or there is some  influence from Egypt -shape looks like this egyption cross

It should date to the 2nd century AD approximately.

The shape is unlikely to have a specific Egyptian context.  There was a huge variety of shapes of enameled fibulae at this time.

Might indicate a mirror, or just be a decorative design.
