Hairpins used to be one of the most popular fashion items during the whole of antiquity. Therefore, they came in all different forms, sizes and shapes. Also the materials they were made of could vary greatly. Some even were made out of precious metals like gold and silver. Others were made out of wood. But bone among ivory was one of the most frequently used materials when it came to the manufacturing of hairpins. Their heads were often richly decorated and neatly carved. The one at hand for example depicts a pine cone.
Hairpins are an absolute must-have item for everyone that wants to roleplay as a Roman women or is about to visit a reenactment event. Further, it makes for great show-and-tell material for history teachers.
