Medium Sized Belt With Hunting Scene. A bronze belt composed of three 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. The surface of the belt is divided into three registers by four horizontal double embossed bands. The figures on the decoration surface, which depicts a hunting scene of mythological creatures, proceed toward each end from the center of the belt, in three rows of similar type, one on top of the other. Geometric and floral motifs of similar types are placed between the figures, as well as a two-leveled sacred tree. A rectangular panel delimited by a double embossed molding is placed at the right end of the belt. The upper part of the panel is missing. Inside the panel, three lions in a walking pose, one on top of the other, are seen. Repair marks from the period the belt was in use are seen. There is a loop-shaped belt buckle on the right end.
