Copper alloy brooch. Cast trumpet brooch, Mackreth type TR 1.x3 (especially pl. 83 no. 5247). A plain trumpet head has the stub of an integrally cast loop or tab on its top, and a loop behind to retain fastening gear [lost]. The bow is then slightly constricted before an equally slight expansion over a possibly eroded moulding, and a more definite mid bow moulding which, like the others, does not pass all around the bow. There is the suspicion of a horizontal groove between this and another vaguely defined moulding after which the lower bow tapers once again. The foot is lost, though the very top of the stub of a catch plate remains. Abraded. Suggested date: Early Roman, 100-180

Length: 41.0mm, Width: 13.4mm, Thickness (crest of bow): 4mm, Weight: 9.70gms
