Contribution to the typology of Roman bone pins
Languages of publication
The analysed set of Roman bone pins (253 items) can be divided into 19 basic types, several variants and subgroups. The contribution is the first complex treatment of these finds from the territory of the current south-western Slovakia. They come from the Roman fort at Iža, from the Roman cemeteries I, II, II and the location Bergl in Bratislava-Rusovce, from excavations on Devin castle and from the Roman collection of Podunajské múzeum in Komárno. The typological and chronological analysis of the items draws on knowledge published in works by renowned European researchers. During the entire Roman Period, bone pins were used not only for hair arrangement, but also to fasten clothes – fibulae, in medicine, pottery decoration, etc.
