Incomplete Roman copper alloy Colchester derivative rearhook brooch of Mackreth's (2011) CD RH Type 4.c dating to the period c. AD 43 - 65. The pin, part of the foot and part of the catchplate are missing. The wings are C-shaped, each with a single moulding at the tip and a diagonal engraved line. Within the wings are traces of solder which would have held the missing spring mechanism in place. Projecting from the top of the head is the stub of the rearhook. The bow tapers from the head and terminates in an old break. It exhibits a central sunken ridge. Projecting from the reverse of the foot is the stub of the catchplate.

See: Mackreth, D.F, 2011, Vol. I, p. 65 & Vol. II, p. 43, pl. 40, no. 11983.
