Description: Greece, Late Geometric Period, ca. 8th century BCE. Made from a single piece of bronze, a fibulae - item for fastening clothing - with a coiled pin, a rounded, wide arc, and a flattened end for holding the pin. The flattened bronze may once have had incised designs, but these are no longer visible. A delightful article from the University of Pennsylvania in 1964 calls these "Ancient Safety Pins". Size: 2.7" L x 1.65" W x 1.5" H (6.9 cm x 4.2 cm x 3.8 cm)
