A Roman copper alloy strap end with a nail cleaner terminal. The strap end has a hipped body and a possible loop on the upper end but the forked terminal is missing. The strap end is decorated with bordering lines of punched dots and crescents. This is one of Crummy and Eckardt's nail-cleaner strap ends (Crummy and Eckardt 2006) and is similar to nos. 112 and 1136. Such strap ends have a largely southern distirbution and appear to be of lagter 4th century date.
