Abstract

Two bronze belt hooks, one of which is an openwork Type Castaneda (Early La Tèneperiod), From Collalbo-Bolzano – In this paper the authors discuss two bronze belt hooks, one of which is an openwork type, found recently at Zaberbachl near Klobenstein-Collalbo on the Ritten-Renon uplands. Theobjects were found during systematic prospecting with a metal detector in an otherwise sterile layer of soil. The absence of an archaeological context emphasises the votive character of the objects. The openwork belt hook is attributable to the Castaneda type. Closest parallels are with the complete belt hooks from San Polo d’Enza and Castaneda, but only the belt hook from Castaneda, from a burial, provides a firm basis for their dating (end 5th-first half of the 4th century BC). The Klobenstein find can be added to the other examples, seven only, known between southern Germany and the western Po Plain. The authors conclude, in short, that the numerous bronze and iron openwork belt hooks of the same date from South Tyrol, which mark it out like a territory through their distinctive distribution, had a role even in the Early La Tène period as a link between the north and south of the Alps, contributing further to the spread, amongst other things, of objects of notable technical and artistic excellence.
