A fibula is a brooch or pin for fastening garments, typically at the right shoulder. Unlike most modern brooches, fibulae were not only decorative; they originally served a practical function: to fasten clothing, such as cloaks. They were popular in the Roman world, and all consist of a body, a pin, and a catch.

More than a dozen fibulae were found in the sifting. Most of them seem to date to the Roman – Byzantine periods. They are still waiting to be studied, and more elaborate details about them will known in the future.
