The hairpin tip originates from Kosmaj and belongs to the period of Roman rule, and came to the Archaeological Collection as part of the Legacy of Leposava Aleksić Zarić. Glass paste was used as a material, which is shaped like a bird with outstretched wings and possibly a sparrow. There is an opening for a needle on the back, which has not been preserved. In Roman culture, women decorated their hairstyles with needles, which were made of bone and bronze or, as in this case, with details made of glass paste. Fashion also spread in the conquered provinces, such as Upper Moesia, which included most of today’s Serbia.
