Abstract:

The author ties to establish a typology of the bracelets made of bronze wires, as follows: Type I: Bracelets made of two bronze wires. Each of the bronze wires was bent in two and twisted. At each end of the bracelet there is a curl (Cuptoare-Sfogea, Caransebeş-Centru Gornea-Căuniţa de Sus, Şopotu Vechi-Mărvilă, Berzovia-Pătruieni Gornea-Zomoniţă, Caraş-Severin district, Izvoarele, Mehedinţi district, Ferigele, Vâlcea district, Orlea, Olt district, Isaccea, Tulcea district). Type I a: Bracelets similar with the precedent ones, but decorated in the filigree technique (Şopotu Vechi-Mărvilă, Caraş-Severin district). Type II: Bracelets twisted, made of a single bronze wire, bent in three, with a curl at one end, the other one being broken (Vărşand-Movila dintre vii, Arad district, Dinogeţia, Tulcea district). Type III: Bracelets made of twisted bronze wires, with tied ends (Vărşand-Movila dintre vii, Arad district, Blandiana-B, Alba district). Type IV: Bracelets made of twisted bronze wires, one end with a curl, the other with a hook. Type IV a: Bracelet twisted, made of a single bronze wire, bent in three, one end with a hook, the other one beeing broken (Vărşand-Movila dintre vii, Arad district). Type IV b: bracelet made of bronze wires, twisted tight (Mirnopole, Ucraina, Alba Iulia, Alba district). Type IV c: Bracelet made of twisted wire, one end with a curl made of two wires. Near the curl there is an ornament. At the other end there is a hook made of single wire (Blandiana, Alba Iulia, Alba district). Type IV d: Bracelet made of twisted wire, one end with a curl, the other end bent in hook shape (Răducăneni, Alba Iulia). Type V: Bracelets made of interlaced bronze wires, oneend with a hook, the other probably with a curl (Vărşand-movila dintre vii, Arad district). Type VI: Bracelets made of twisted bronze wires or made of bronze bar which imitates twisted wire, with zoomorphic ornaments each end. Type VI a: Bracelet made of twisted bronze wires. Both ends are decorated with animal heads (Vărşand-Movila dintre vii, Arad district, Timişoara-Cioreni, Timiş district, Alba Iulia, Alba district). Type VI b: Bracelet made of bronze bar which imitates twisted wire, with tied zoomorphic ends (Kovács 3 b type; Mâsca, Arad district, Oradea, Bihor district, Vărşand, Arad-Câmpul din afara cetăţii, Arad district, Moldoveneşti, Cluj district) Type VI c: bracelet made of mouled bronze bar, which imitates twisted wire, with separated zoomorphic ends (Vărşand-Movila dintre vii, Arad district, Foeni, Bihor district, Dinogeţia, Tulcea district). Type VI d: bracelet made of bronze bar which imitates twisted wire, with tied zoomorphic ends (Kovács 4 b type; Roiori, Bihor district). The inner surface is flat (without incisions).
