An incomplete copper alloy possible Roman plate brooch dating to AD 80-150. The plate is rectangular in shape, with a solid raised border running around the edge. The brooch is divided into three panels depicting a wolf flanked by two birds. On the inside of the panels is blue enamel with the surface of the light green copper alloy patina showing through.

On the reverse Is the remains of the attachment. On one side there is the catchplate, this is rectangular in shape with the outer edge curved over to hold the now missing pin. On the opposite side is the remains of the pin hinge plate. This is square in shape and has a central circular perforation. The pin is missing. There is no decoration on the reverse.

The brooch has a dark green patina. The length is 56mm, the width is 32mm. No exact parallels were found for this object and it is possibly later in date.

Similar brooches can been seen in Hattatt 2000, page 349, numbers 584-585 and Mackreth 2011, page 124, numbers 14793 and 7886.
