An incomplete copper alloy Iron Age La Tène I type brooch, dating to the period 400-200 BC. The pin and half of the spring are missing; only two coils remain to one side. The brooch measures 53.36mm in length and 7.68mm maximum width. As the coil meets the bow, there are three transverse incisions spanning the width of the bow, which at this point measures 3.36mm in width. The bow broadens in width to 7.68mm before tapering to a base where three further transverse linear incisions have been made. The length of the bow has at least three longitudinal linear incisions. After the latter of the three transverse linear incisions, the brooch curves away from the face of the brooch, until the foot of the catchplate which tapers towards the face of the brooch again. There are two transverse linear incisions before a circular knop on the foot, measuring 7.37mm in diameter and 4.54mm in thickness. The gap between foot and bow is 0.61mm. In total, the brooch weighs 11.81g and has a pitted, dark green patina.
