This brooch bases on a very fragmented original (pic. 3) of the grave field from Wederath, Germany, the ancient Belginum. This "Distelfibel" was reconstructed using original fibulae in the museums of Trier, Mainz and Cologne. This type (No. 4.5.2 in the book of Emilie Riha trading the fibulae of Augst and Kaiseraugst in Switzerland) has probalbly it´s origin in Gallia and was popular to the west in Britain and to the east in the Rhine provinces, Helvetia and the Danube provinces. In Augst this kind of fibula was mainly used in the middle of the 1st century AD. Size 85 x 50 mm, a realy stunning example of celto-roman craftmanship. Will be delivered with certificate.
