This bronze buckle was excavated from the coffin inside Ancient Tomb No. 20 in Cheongdang-dong, Cheonan. Overall, it has no specific decoration, but the shallow groove at its end suggests that it portrays the shape of a snake. The buckle is thickest where the fixing metal is attached, and becomes thinner toward the end before thickening again at the end.
