This is a Greek variant common in the northern Illyrian and Dacian territories.

Some sources put it early - 8th-7th or 6th-5th centuries BC - but from what I have seen it is apparently a late hold-over, perhaps as recent as the 3rd century BC.

I have found few similar fibulae of this type in the literature and there they refer to them as hinged type fibulae (hinged serpent-head fibulae). I am posting a picture of similar one found in Celtic hoard of silver jewelry (Čurug, North Serbia), dated to the earlier period of Celtic expansion into the Balkans, i.e. the late 4th / early 3rd c. BC so confirms what Shawn wrote.
