This kind of brooch is part of Oskar Almgrens Group No. III, the so-called Eye-Fibulae. This kind of brooch is very wide-spreaded and was in use in the roman provinces, but mainly in free Germania. Finds were made in the northern and eastern germany, but also in southern Denmark. The type is named after two circular decorations at the upper part of the bow. The brooches are popular in the 1st half of the first century AD. The finds of the Zugmantel and Saalburg fort seem to proof a very long time of use, in single cases until the end of the 1st century AD.  

Find from the Saalburg-fort in Germany, Inv. no. S00/1. Copied with kindly permission of the Saalburg-Museum, size ca. 5,5cm. Our reconstruction is made from 925 silver with fully operational spring pin made from hard Alpaca silver.

Literature: A. Böhme-Schönberger, Die Fibeln der Kastelle Saalburg und Zugmantel, In: Saalburg-Jahrbuch XXIX (Berlin 1972).
