Medium Sized Belt With Hunting Scene. The belt composed of multiple fragments. All the fragments were attached together and the missing portions between them were completed. The outer border is perforated with small string holes with short gaps between them. The surface of the belt is divided into two registers by three embossed bands with dots in the middle. There is a hunting scene on the surface. The figures on the decoration surface proceed toward each end from the center of the belt, in two rows of similar type, one on top of the other. The registers are divided into rectangular panels by embossed ribs. Sprouts, loops and rosettes are placed alternately in the panels between the figures. The figures include running bulls and winged horses, and human-headed, bird-bodied mythological creatures both shooting and not shooting arrows in a walking pose.
