Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A Roman Headstud brooch made of copper alloy. Headstud brooches date from the early 2nd Century onwards. Each brooch would have been worn on the shoulder and the chain would have been suspended between them. This cast copper-alloy brooch is a heavily duty example, with a raised head stud; which has been decorated with a ring and large dot and may have been burnished when in its original condition. At the apex of the head there is a complete chain loop, now filled with iron corrosion product. The wings are short and decorated with vertical, parallel grooves. The wings have a triangular section and a hinge mechanism has been built into the reverse. The start of the pin survives, but the rest has broken off. The bow tapers to the foot. The foot and catchplate have broken off. The brooch survives in a very poor condition. Similar to Hattatt, p332-3.
