    Referring to the item H386 (iron age bronze penannular fibula) I payed 62 € for 2 items, as indicated in the catawiki description, but I receveid just one fibula. I hope this problem could be solved.

    Hi. I am very sorry. I have checked the description and you are quite right, it does say there are two items. Actually I am not sure how or why the quantity was written as two, and this is why I only sent one. But I must say that it was my mistake and I should have noticed. So I will be happy to send you one more fibula. I can offer to send you one more of the same type of fibula (of course the dimension will be just a little different), or if you like I can send you a different type of fibula ie a P-shaped fibula (circa 2nd-3rd century AD). Please let me know what you prefer.

    6000 yrs old Vinca neolithic statuette. Nice one to buy, despite the accumulated erosion this little figurine still brings on a happy smile to everyone today. Good seller.
