Humpbacked combs were discovered in late Roman or Gothic necropolises. Some combs decorated with dot-circles could be found in the late Roman cemeteries from Lauriacum, Tokod, Brigetio and Intercisa in Pannonia and in the Dating hiatus necropolis from Sântana de Mures Mures County.
The double-sided Roman combs came from the Greek area of the Roman Empire and could be found until the 6th century A. The humpbacked combs were produced until the first decades of the 5th century A. In post-Roman Dacia, humpbacked combs dating from as late as the first half of the 5th century could be found, whereas double-sided combs were present after this period as well. Humpbacked combs may however have been used until the first decades of the 5th century in Dacia in the Roman environment.
The double-sided and humpbacked combs dating hiatus in the post-Roman settlement from Alba Iulia at the Dealul Furcilor-Monolit site can be placed in a larger time frame, between the 4th and 6th centuries A.
A hiatus exists in archaeological research regarding the use of these combs by the local population from the former Roman province of Dating hiatus.
I hope that future archaeological research will tackle these trends of the Roman and local population.
