Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An incomplete cast copper alloy Trumpet brooch of Roman date. The head, bow, acanthus moulding, catchplate and foot all survive, but the pin mechanism and pin no longer remain. From the reverse of the head the loop which would have held the pin mechanism can be seen. The head is wide and trumpet shaped and is decorated with an incised ring around the edge. From the head the upper bow extends terminating with three very worn collars. Below the collar is a crude acanthus decoration followed by a second set of triple collars. Extending down from the lower collar is the D-shaped sectioned lower bow which is decorated with an incised border and further incised markings. This bow terminates in a circular foot with three collars, one of which is decorated with vertical incised lines. From the reverse of the lower bow the catchplate remains intact, if a little worn. The metal is a mid greenish-brown colour and is very worn. Brooches of this type date from between 75-175 AD. Similar examples can be seen in Hattatt, p.326, fig.185.
