This is half of a form of belt buckle.  A pair of these S-shaped objects were used.  They link to plain round rings, or a buckle plate, either D-shaped or square.

The are found in northern Serbia, northern Bulgaria, eastern Romania and the Crimea.

They are generally dated to the second half of the 5th century (but were used into the 6th) and are associated with the Ostrogoths who migrated into the lower Danube at that time from the Crimea region.
