The paper presents a Late Roman strap end with a rider from Tonovcov grad above Kobarid in western Slovenia and comparable belt sets with rectangular buckle plates and strap ends from the southeastern Alps and Pannonia. The author discusses the decorative motif of the rider or Bellerophon and Chimera which appears on belts sets and links it to the representation of victory over the enemy and the equipment of high military representatives on the Pannonian limes and its hinterground in the critical time of the late 4th and early 5th century.
