An incomplete copper alloy cast Roman Colchester derivative (double lug) brooch dating to the period AD 43- 100.

The head and the wings of the brooch remain simple. The wings are D-shaped in cross section and in terminal shape. On the inferior side of the head is the two piece mechanism, which is part of the widest area of the head. As the head reaches the bow it tapers inwards until it reaches the foot. The entirety of the brooch remains undecorated. A fragment of the pin survives.

Overall, the height of the brooch is 37.76mm, the width is 19.81mm and the weight is 4.22g.

A parallel to this brooch can be found in Hattats "A Visual Catalogue of Richard Hattatt's Ancient Brooches" page 297, figure 156, No. 874.
