Two reinforcement panels belonging to a single belt. While the right panel is relatively complete, the majority of the left panel is missing. There are two string holes on the bottom part of the right panel and one string hole along the top part. The right panel is divided into two rectangular panels by embossed ribs. There is a loop-shaped belt buckle in the middle part of the molding dividing the two panels. In the smaller vertically oriented rectangular panel, which is on the left, there are eagle figures on the top and the bottom and a bird-bodied, human-headed mythological creature in the middle. A walking lion with an open mouth as if it was growling is depicted in the horizontal rectangular panel on the right. There is an embossed geometric rosette above the tail of the lion. Only the back of a lion, placed in a panel, can be seen on the left panel.
