Description Fibulae (pins) with wire spirals were common in Greece, South Italy, and the Picene area of eastern Italy. The Italic examples, like this one, commonly have a separate clasp element to which the spirals are attached, while in the Greek examples the pin and catch are formed from the ends of the spiral wires themselves.
