VERY RARE SILVER CROSS-BOW FIBULA, ROMAN, 3RD.-4TH. CENTURY AD.

The fibula in solid silver and inscribed with latin words EX SUPERA one side and a long inscription (something like TXVIVAS) on the other side, all in niello. There's also a stylized pattern of inlaid Niello on the bow.

Size: ca. 4 cm. long.

Condition: Choice, missing it's pin, but still very nice for it's rare type.
