In view of several new finds of the fibulae of the Jezerine type on the south of the Liburnian territory, namely two fibulae from Dragišić, a list was created of all sites of the Jezerine-type fibulae from Croatia. The earlier archaeological literature placed this fibula shape with a strap bow segment in the group of early Roman fibulae of the late La Tène type, particularly pieces from Sisak and eastern Slavonia. In accordance with recent classifications of fibulae of the Jezerine type, the finds from Croatia can be classified into several different groups and variants. In addition to two new pieces of the Jezerine-type fibulae from Dragišić, we added to the list the newly published finds from Grobnik and Osor which were left out from recent works about fibulae of the Jezerine type. We also deal with the issue of the silver fibula from Nesactium, whose attribution to the Jezerine type is not unanimous. The fibulae of the Jezerine type in the Liburnian territory and elsewhere in Croatia can be dated at the earliest to around 30 B.C., and at the eponymous site of Jezerine Bosnia and Herzegovina to the second or ‘’b’’ period of the fifth phase and to the sixth phase of the Iapodian necropolises in the Una valley.
