Ave!

Copper alloy for each; the larger artifact is 57mm. Each have a pair of pin connecters on the back and similar three lug adornments.

Yeah, I know I'm breaking the rules, but it seemed best to present them together.  :angel:

Thanks,

Kevin

Roman horse harness decoration - "lenticular with rosette ends" form.  Claudian till end of 2nd century.  A Croatian example is found in the Zagreb catalogue -  Radman-Livaja (2005), fig. 6, # 45, though they have also been found in the Netherlands and other places.

The small one is likely upside down as the loop might be for a small hanger pendant or bell.
