Externe Datierung: Die Kapsel aus Arlon datiert aufgrund der formalen Ähnlichkeiten mit Funden aus Wittislingen und Wonsheim an den Beginn des 7. Jh.s, die Grablege erfolgte wohl innerhalb des ersten Drittels des 7. Jh.s (Düwel 1994b, 294; Vida 1995, 251; Schwab 1998, 425).

Träger/Objekttyp: Es handelt sich um eine kugelig gestaltete Kapsel aus Silberblech, die zumeist als Amulett betrachtet wird. Sie stammt aus einem Frauengrab, wo sie zwischen den Schenkeln der Toten lag und an einem Gürtelgehänge befestigt gewesen sein dürfte (Werner 1950, 41; Vida 1995, 257f.).
