A copper-alloy Roman cable style bracelet fragment. It consists of three sub-rectangular cross-sectioned strands twisted around each other to form a spiral. The fragment has a curvilinear profile, probably due to its original use. Both the ends are incomplete and have signs of old breaks now worn.

Similar example is in Crummy (1983, p. 38-39, fig. 41, no. 1628). late 3rd-4th century AD in date.
