Medium Sized Belt With Embossed Dots. A belt composed of multiple fragments. One single piece was reduced by attaching all the fragments together and completing the small spaces between the fragments. The outer border is perforated with small string holes with short gaps between them. The surface is decorated with five horizontal bands composed of four lines of embossed dots. There is a rectangular panel delimited by bands of embossed dots at the right end of the belt. A five-leveled sacred tree which is connected by volutes, loop and palmette rosettes on both sides of the tree’s branches and in the middle section are alternately placed. A loop-shaped belt buckle is riveted to the end of this section. Repair marks from the period the belt was in use are visible.
