A Roman copper alloy Colchester derivative, double-lugged, Harlow brooch. The brooch has a comma shaped bow which is plano-convex in section and is decorated down the centre with a wavey moulded line set within a recessed border. The wings extend only a small way to either side of the bow. An integral rearward loop is set in the centre at the top, and another is set in the centre of the reverse; both would have secured the pin and spring. The catchplate is incomplete but appears to have been openwork.

Class: Colchester derivative, double-lugged, Harlow
