Between 1959 and 1968, Mihály Kőhegyi uncovered fifty-four graves of a burial ground at Mélykút–Sánc-dűlő. He found five late Sarmatian/Hun period and forty-nine Avar burials. The burial ground was completely excavated. Grave 14, an Avar burial, yielded a gold pendant of the Mezőszilas type. This study will focus on the parallels and the possible typological forerunners of this pendant, as well as on how these ornaments were worn, their dating, and their place of manufacture.
