A near complete Roman copper alloy hinged Hod Hill brooch, missing only its pin, probably dating to c. AD 43-75. The head of the brooch consists of a sub-rectangular plate rolled over itself to form the wings with a central rectangular slot cut to accommodate a hinged pin; both the pin and axis bar are now lost. The bow of the brooch tapers towards the foot, and is decorated with a longitudinal corded ridge on either edge, flanking a central channel. The foot is offset from the rest of the bow, and is plain. It terminates in a simple knop. An unperforated sub-triangular catchplate projects from the reverse fot he foot, the pin rest curving right. Traces of a white metal coating survive on the lower bow/foot.
