Incomplete copper-alloy brooch of Nauheim Derivative type and late Iron Age to early Roman date. It consists of a rectangular-section bow with a sharp right angled bend towards the top; at the bend, the bow measures 2.5mm wide and 2mm thick. At the top of the bow, the copper-alloy rod then curls up and forward into nearly two turns of the spring, before a break. The surviving coils sit on the left-hand side of the bow when the brooch is viewed from the front. At the other end, the bow tapers to a pointed foot; on the reverse of the foot are the remains of a catchplate. Total length 42.5mm, weight 2.14g. It is similar to Mackreth 2011 pl. 14, no. 4898.
