New fibulas.

Replicas of a disc fibula from Introbio, Lombardy, italian alps.
Fibulas of end of II century B.C., the disc is obtained by a 0.8 mm bronze sheet, lighlty worked with simple concentric decorations and finally polished. The brass hook is fixed by a bronze rivet.

Despite they are called "fibulae" in some book, they don't work like normal celtic brooches, with spring and needle.
Some scholars think they are belt buckles (but i can't see how they could work); Federico tested them as cloak holders and they seem to work.

They are only typical of that small valley, and they have never been found elsewhere, as far as i know.

BTW:
1) nice work, Federico!
2) did you introduce yourself in this forum? Did you tell everybody that you are a proud member of Teuta Brig too?
