Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A complete copper-alloy pendant of possible Roman date, c. AD 50 - 200. The object comprises a hollow sub-elliptical bow with an integral loop to one end. One side of the bow is straight while the other is curved outwardly. It is undecorated.

The metal has a dark green patina and is worn. The object is 18.8mm long, 5.4mm wide, 4.7mm thick and weighs 0.9g.

This object is similar in form to Roman cosmetic mortars such as YORYM-AFDE3C. It is however much smaller in size and the shape is not entirely consistent with such objects.
