Late roman belt set from Traprain Law, Scotland
So news and necropost: this buckle, in fact this whole typology of buckles, is Hunnic. It's more evidence for Hun influence on the 5th century Roman military. They come from a typology that originates in the Eurasian Steppes; a contemporary example from Volnikovka in Russia has a complete set of buckle and stiffeners that wrap all the way around the belt.
