The flat bow/body is sub-triangular in plan and tapers to an incomplete catch-plate at the bottom. The front of the bow is decorated with two incised lines that form a vertical 'V'. The rear of the bow is flat and plain.

This brooch is green and pitted.

Nauheim derivative brooches are common in Britain during the Roman period and were probably manufactured in Britain as well as the Continent. Similar examples have been recorded in Bayley and Butcher (2004), page 54, fig. 37, and these have been dated to the 1st century AD. Similar brooches have been recorded on The Portable Antiquities Scheme database. For example, see finds: IOW-9DA026; IOW-CCFD5A; SUSS-8BD923; SUSS-A6BD93; WMID-970A76 and WMID-DD5E1F.
