This "belt," a large bronze strip sewn onto a leather or fabric backing, was probably made to be included in the tomb of its owner.   It shows a hunting scene with horned bulls, pouncing lions, horsemen with spears and chariots with a driver and an archer - all separated  by alternating rosettes and crosses.
