The bottom section of the right end of a belt. The intact part of the outer border is perforated by small string holes with short gaps between them. The left part is decorated by two parallel bands of four rows of embossed dots. The bands proceed to the left. There is a rectangular panel bordered by a band of embossed dots on the right. At the bottom of the panel, there is a mythological creature with a lion body, bird wings and bullhorns, bent at the knees. Above this is a three-leveled sacred tree, with a root in the middle and branches that open on both sides. The body of the sacred tree is connected with diamond motifs. Sprouts and garnets are placed at the ends of the branches of the sacred tree. A loop-shaped belt buckle is attached to the right end of the fragment.
