Cast copper-alloy Polden Hill brooch. Roman period, c.AD75-175. Mass: 4.4g; length: 21mm; width: 12mm; depth: 9mm. T-shaped in plan with an incomplete hook on the head. Comma shaped in profile. The semi-cylindrical side-wings are incomplete. There is an incomplete pierced end-cap on one side wing, although this is missing from the other side-wing. There are plates on the side of the head. The spring and pin mechanism are missing, as is the catchplate and foot. The brooch is heavily corroded, although portions of the surface retain a well developed brown patina. Due to surface condition, it is unclear if there is any further decoration on the brooch.
