Spiral Fibula


Description Provenance Credit
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.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
