Cicada Fibula, Bronze
Because of their singing, the cicadas were associated with the god of music, Apollo. The subterranean transformation (metamorphosis) into a flying insect also made the cicada a symbol of youth and rebirth. So it is not surprising that the fibulae in the form of cicadas were particularly used in the clothing of children and young women. They were either worn in pairs for the closing of a tunic or as single brooches on the neckline or on a cloak.
