Abstrakt: In the gravel pits around Bécsi domb, Sopron, clay vessels, iron and bronze items were found in the beginning of the 1870s. Most of them got lost, but one of the finds was noticed by the painter and art collector F. Storno Jr., who acquired the goods of several graves in 1872, 1878 and 1879 for his collection. The collected findings were published by F. Pulszky in the 1880 issue of Archaeologiai Értesítő. He identified the findings as goods of a male burial (iron spear head, scissors, cutting knife/Ger. “Hiebmesser”, iron fibulae and an iron object folded into a rectangular shape) and one or more female burials (bronze bracelets, bronze fibulae: a pair of a dragon head fibulae linked with a chain, a disc-footed applied plate fibula and a Duchov type fibula with profiled bow; Pl. I: 1). F. Pulszky presented drawings of several ornamented ceramic vessels. Whether they are from previously presented or other destroyed graves cannot be decided, just as in the case of the only mentioned bracelets.
