Belt buckle (Byzantine? or from somewhere else?)
« on: February 17, 2022, 02:29:47 pm »
Hi,
This belt buckle was part of a lot of Byzantine coins and artifacts. I wonder if someone can point me to some parallels, because I can't find anything Byzantine that is obviously similar.
Regards
Gert

This looks like a medieval Byzantine buckle plate.

Square plates with a griffon design, but with a long vertical hole on the right side, likely to loop the leather through, are Schulze-Dorrlamm's type G2 and G3 dated from the late 8th to the early 10th centuries.

Yours without the vertical hole must be roughly similar.
