A fragment from the head and upper bow of a Roman copper-alloy bow brooch, possibly a Trumpet derivative. At the head is an abraded plate on the lower surface of which is a double semicircular pin lug. This latter has been perforated centrally to take an axis bar which was made of iron given the corrosion product around the lug. In places the plate has been broken right down to the lug; presumably it was once semicircular. The pin is missing. The bow springs from the base of the head-plate and curves through ninety degrees such that it is parallel to the head-plate. The bow is …

They have expanded domes a…

The fantail foot of a Roman bow brooch, probably a bow-and-fantail type or Aesica varient (1st/2nd century AD). The brooch has broken at a central circular 'button'. This would have been raised up; the upwards angle as the button connects to the foot seems an original feature and suggests the bow above was also raised. A central setting may have been housed within a double concentric ring moulding that forms the button or this may have been the point from which the bow projected up and out. The foot below is broadly triangular with slightly projecting ring settings at each lower corne…

The head and upper bow from a copper-alloy Developed T-shaped brooch of early Roman date. The leg is missing below a central knop due to an old break. Furthermore, only the head of the pin survives.

The head and upper part of the bow of a Roman cast copper-alloy initial T-shaped brooch with hinged pin dating to c. AD 60-100. The lower part of the bow, foot and pin are missing to worn breaks.

The complete wing is decorated with a double transverse ridge moulding towards its top with an incised line within. There is a large transverse slot through the centre of the underside of the head, between the w…
