An incomplete, copper alloy, Roman T-shaped brooch. The wings are cylindrical and house a corroded axis bar (perhaps iron). A fragment of the pin still remains and has been bent over time. The bow is relatively straight in cross section (which could be a result of damage over time) and wide at the top before tapering to sharply to a pointed foot. There appears to be a raised decorative pattern of the bow, in an almost elongated tear drop shape which mirrors the shape of the bow. other than this, the brooch is relatively undecorated.
