Metallic components of military gear found in Gardun, at

the site of the Roman military camp Tilurium, are analyzed

in this work. Belt buckles were a part of a Roman

soldier’s personal gear, while components of armour chest

hooks and tie-hooks and helmets crest support were

parts of his protective ware. Most items are riding harness

pendants, while the only weapon is an arrowhead. With

the exception of the arrowhead, which has been dated to

the medieval period, all of the materials analyzed date to

the first century.
