BROOCH

Unique ID: WILT-606C66

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A fragment of a Roman copper alloy brooch, probably a Colchester derivative type, dating to c. AD 50-125. The surviving portion comprises of the foot of the brooch, which tapers to an unelaborated point, with an unperforated, sub-triangular catchplate projecting from the reverse. The pin rest curves right. The bow is lost to an old break, it is sub-oval in cross section.

Dimensions: 25.6mm; 3.8510.1 2.16g.

It is difficult to assign such a small fragment to a specific type, however the form and lack of elaboration of the foot would probably suggest an earlier Colchester derivative, cf. SOM-8100BB.
