Roman Baldrick Phalaera (Pavlov)3D Model
The unique find of a copper alloy fitting, discovered during amateur metal detector survey, contributes to the study of the Roman Period north of the Middle Danube. The available information locates the findplace as the rocky NE promontory of Pavlov Hills, an area of the medieval fortification called Dívčí hrady. The fitting, possibly belonging to a balteus, has outer diameter of 97 mm, a thickness of 3 mm and its face is divided into four parts and decorated with pelta motives. It can be dated between the 2nd half of the 2nd century CE and the 1st and 2nd thirds of the following century. XRF and SED-EDX analyses of the material were carried out. The location of the find on the highly exposed site is considered to be significant.
