Pelta-shaped decorations were popular, numerous finds were made in the Limes forts and settlements, dating from the 1st to the 3rd century. Mainly in military context they were used as belt decorations, brooches or pendants.
The pelta ornament is named after a light, crescent shaped shield, which was in use by the light ancient greek infantry (pic 2). In ancient art, the female warriors of the Amazons were often depicted with this shields, that´s why the pelta shields are also called "Amazon´s shields" (pic. 3).

Our reproduction is a reconstructed copy of an original leather belt fitting, now in the collection of the Saalburg-museum, Germany. We removed the knobs on the backside and fitted an eyelet to make it wearable as a pendant. Handcrafted from real bronze, delivery with leather thong and certificate. Size ca. 20 x 20 mm.
