Medium Sized Belt With Hunting Scene. A belt composed of five fragments. All the fragments were attached together and the missing parts were completed. The outer border is perforated with small string holes with short gaps between them. A studded molding delimits the outer border of the decoration scene. The figures on the decoration surface proceed toward each end from the center of the belt, in three rows of similar type, one on top of the other. The figures were generally arranged symmetrically. The figures and cavalry on the hunter vehicle hunt mythological creatures as well as lion and bull. Hunting chariots and cavalry are hunting lions, bulls and mythological creatures. In addition, some mythological creatures are depicted hunting their own kind. The figures are placed alternately one after another, in a line. Three-foot soldiers with hunting equipment are placed on top of each other at the right end of the belt. Three winged divine figures with hunting equipment are placed on top of each other at the left end of the belt. A total of 99 figures are depicted in 33 successive columns on the belt. There is a loop-shaped buckle at the right end of the belt.
