DescriptionThe provenance of the sword belt which was kindly translated for me by Black Widow whose English is way better than my French.
"Italic sword belt
4th century B.C.
The lower part of the sword belt was modified: the holes that originally allowed the fixing of the lining were eliminated and replaced by other holes, rudimentary pierced, allowing the suspension of a metallic maille which echoes the elements of the 7th century B.c. feminine jewelry. The era in which this decorative intervention happened remains unknown."
