CE/DA00801. The belt buckle is made of bronze. It is a rigid flat piece with bird-shaped perforations within a frame decorated with vegetal motifs. The birds have a long neck and their beaks face downwards. The hinge of the buckle presents two more birds, facing each other, with a tree of life standing between them. The end of the fastener represents the head of a dog (Fernández-Chicarro 1954; Pinedo andMartínez 1955).
