An incomplete small cast early Roman copper-alloy brooch of two part Colchester variety with a double-pierced lug, dating to c.AD 43-100.

Description: The brooch has open semi-circular cross sectioned pair of wings under which the missing the spring and pin would have sat. The wings are undecorated with a prominent double pierced lug between them at the base of the bow. The bow is curved and very shallow D-shape din cross-section with a raised ridge running from the lug towards the foot, with a small ridge running down each side with a small nick on along it near the head.. The bow has snapped prior to the catchplate, thus likely missing at least a quarter of its length if not more. The brooch is mottled dark and light green colour.

Measurements: Length: 23.63mm, Width: 19.9mm, Thickness: 8.76mm and Weight: 2.55g in weight.
