Iron, copper-alloy and gilded copper-alloy strap link. Strap-link consisting of two articulating strap fixings clenched over the strap by two copper-alloy rivets with flat gilded heads (cf. 22a). One of the rivet heads may be a replacement as it has a slightly larger diameter and the ring-and-dot ornament is cleaner and less pronounced.
