This fragment from a bronze belt was reused as a belt end. The embossed or chased design is divided by discs and scroll-crosses into panels with discs above stylised trees. A deity stands on a bull. The holes around the edge are for nails or stitching. From Eastern Anatolia, in modern-day Turkey. Urartian, 7th century BCE. (The British Museum, London).
