Abstract :
The aim of this paper is to give a detailed analysis of a group of pendants and pins distinguished by the presence of peculiar decorations. We have proposed for these objects a new date to the Iron Age. The majority of them were found in a number of excavations, in rich burials of persons of high rank. In most cases, the objects were found in poor condition, while the best-preserved specimen, discovered in Gavar almost complete, was found in fortuitous circumstances. In the present article, a new interpretation of this object is provided.
