The main aim of this paper is the typological classification of the 31 Roman Age brooches recovered at the archaeological site of Paks-Gyapa – Rosti-puszta. There are several pieces among the brooches discussed in the paper to which no exact parallels have yet been published from the territory of Pannonia. Beside the detailed classification of the brooches observations concerning their fabrication and decoration technique were also discussed. In general, the pieces can be dated to the Early and Middle Roman Age, however the aim of identifying exact typologycal groups as well as presenting paralells was to create a basis to a more precise dating of the objects.
