Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An incomplete cast copper-alloy Roman plate brooch, dating to the period AD 100- 250.

The brooch is circular in shape, measuring 21.37mm in diameter and weighs 4.48g. It is incomplete insofar as the pin is missing, along with any decoration that may have resided in the central circular recess. The plate brooch has been divided into three. A small central circular recess, measuring 2.96mm in diameter, then there is a larger circular recess, measuring 14.88mm in diameter. After this there is 3.58mm, running concentrically around the larger circular recess to the edge of the plate. Aside from in this outside ring, there is no discernible decoration. The outside ring contains traces of gilding. On the back of the brooch is the catchplate, but no pin or discernible decoration.

A parallel to this brooch can be on the PAS database under WILT- DDE3DF.
