This necklace made of clay was found in a grave alongside other ornaments and two veil holders. It dates from the 5th-4th century BCE and was found at the Necropolis of Navafría, Clares (Maranchón, Guadalajara), Spain. As it is thought to represent the passing of the seasons, it was probably a ceremonial necklace used by the ancient Celtiberians. (Museo Arqueológico Nacional, Madrid)
