A copper alloy rectangular plate, designed to fit onto the buckle element. It has an oval cut-out and is decorated in a similar fashion to the other elements of the belt set. The scrollwork follows the rectangular outline of the plate, which has carved animals on the outer borders at top and bottom. A rolled tube of copper alloy, similar to those on the buckle plates, is designed to protect the leather belt from excessive wear. The plate was attached to the belt with small rivets, as with the other elements of the belt set.
Belts such as these were worn as badges of high rank in the civil service or the army. The style is Germanic and the wearer was probably a German.
