Copper-alloy fragment of Roman patera (or skillet) handle, dating to c. 50 - 200 AD. The fragment consists of approximately half of the flat circular perforated terminus and some of the stem of the handle, which begins to taper and is decorated with two grooves running down each edge. The circular terminus is decorated by a ridge around the central aperture and dots punched inconsistently along the outer edge. Corrosion of the copper-alloy has resulted in a dark-green patina and the surface of the fragment is pitted with corrosion. The edges of the fragment are very worn and jagged. The fragment is 34.00mm in length, 28.48mm in width and 3.23mm at maximum thickness. The weight of the fragment is 10.63g.
