Copper alloy plate brooch fragment. The central part of a cast plate brooch, Mackreth type British Plate 2.b, especially no. 11599. A now oval plate was probably achieved by trimming the border from the brooch. What remains comprises a reserved six lobed figure with central reserved annulus. A hexagonal cell around the centre is filled with brick red enamel. The reserved dots appear against a paler field of [now] greenish tint. The single stub of a seat for a sprung pin and the opposed stub of a catch plate appear on the back. Suggested date: Roman, 175-300
