This paper presents about twenty fibulae (18 from Odemis and 3 from Mardin) The majority of them date to the Iron Age, but 4 are Roman The Museum of Odemis preserves brooches coming from various parts of modern Turkey, while the few fibulae of Mardin seem to be of local origin. Generally the fibulae belong to well known and widely distributed types: it is noteworthy that in the region of Mardin fibulae appear that are close to those of Urartian manufacture.
