From Imre Pongrácz’s collection, collected at the end of the 19th century, mainly from the Iron Gates region,
there are also some bronze cast fibulae with bent stem, keys and buckle with bird heads. They date back to the
6th century AD, being found in the ruins around the Roman-Byzantine Theodora tower, located in the southwest
corner of the Roman fort from Drobeta-Turnu Severin. This discovery was published nearly five decades ago and
was said to represent the remains of a metallurgical workshop that operated in the Roman-Byzantine fortification.
Recently, it was discovered that two bronze bracelets were found along with these cast pieces. This fact suggests
the possibility that these castings are not from a workshop, but from a place of storage and sale of goods brought
through the annona.
