Gold buckle from the Thetford treasure
Roman Britain, 4th century ADFrom Thetford, Norfolk
A dancing satyr
This gold belt buckle is part of a remarkable hoard of late-Roman gold jewellery and silver tableware found near Thetford, Norfolk, in 1979.
The figure on the plate is a dancing satyr holding a bunch of grapes. Two horses’ heads form the loop or bow. The buckle is one of a number of explicitly pagan items in the treasure, which was buried around AD 390, by which time the Roman Empire was officially Christian.

Pilar Montoya de Alcalá, the curandera of Santiago de los Montes, became a respected if somwhat feared voice in her town as well as the greater wixen community when she revealed herself to be a nahual, as they call animagi, in order to defeat a Cucuy. The Cucuy, while commonly used as a tale to frighten children, is in fact a very real if uncommon savage shapeshifting beast that feeds on human flesh. They are extremely dangerous and difficult to kill, and especially enjoy devouring young children. Doña Pilar became a hero to the town of Santiago de los Montes when she transformed into a hawk and clawed out the eyes of the Cucuy before tearing out its heart, saving the life of a seven-year-old girl that would have been it’s third victim in the town. While in part greatly feared for her power, Doña Pilar protected Santiago de los Montes often by reputation alone against dark forces for her entire life.

Kosode

c.1610

According to an attached document, Ieyasu gave this to the head of the Sagi school of Kyogen (Noh farce) in 1610. Since there is a record that Ieyasu loved Kyogen and performed it himself, some claim that this kosode could have been made specifically for Noh performance. (Tokyo National Museum)
