The important discovery took place in the monumental necropolis of Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II in Pollenzo, during the excavations in 2002, when a group of burials in the ground was discovered next to the foundations of the funerary monuments (2nd century A.D.). The last of these (5th century A.D.) was the tomb of a woman aged about 30 who wore jewels which attest her Germanic.eastern origins and upper class; this finding aroused a great interest due to the uniqueness of the territory. Perhaps it belonged to the wife of an army officer stationed in the town, the army was mainly made up of barbarians.
The rich jewellery set included a pair of large silver-foil stirrup fibulae that attached the cloak to the dress at the shoulder height, gold earrings with small full polyhedron, gold beads maybe pendants of the earrings or the remains of a necklace, a small silver clip in the middle  of the chest, a grain in glass paste, which was probably part of  a necklace together with other perishable materials. Two ceramic fuses (small disks inserted in the spindle for spinning) complete the funeral kit.
