Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An complete Roman copper alloy lock bolt dating from the 2nd Century. The lock is rectangular in plan and in cross-section with an openwork body. A rectangular sectioned shaft projects from one end, placed not centrally, but at the side of the bolt. The body of the lock has been bent slightly, at the point where the openwork design begins. The openwork area comprises four pierced holes that are sub rectangular in form: three of these hole are evenly spaced and appear below shank level with the first being placed at the beginning of the body; the fourth hole is on the same level as the shank and above, but not aligned with, the third hole. The lock has a medium green patina. See also PAS record ID KENT-346945.
