Musée du Chätillonnais, Chätillon-Sur-Seine

Worn by a Gallic princess around 500 B.C., this gold diadem was found in a tumulus grave at Vix, about 125 miles southeast of Paris (compare with photo of two gold pins). The finials at either end represent poppy capsules that would have hung down over the princess’s ears. The diadem is Greek in design—though most of the other Greek representations of poppy capsule are more crudely worked and made of bronze, stone, clay or bone.
