Fibula

 

a metal clasp that was used in ancient times to fasten clothing and, at the same time, served as an ornament. Fibulae of various shapes and designs were widespread from the Bronze Age to the early Middle Ages. The fibula consisted of a pin, a bow, a groove, and a spring, which joined the pin to the bow. In archaeology, fibulae play an important role in dating. Fibulae made of precious metals inlaid with precious stones often serve as fine examples of the ancient art of jewelry-making.
