A copper-alloy Roman zoomorphic plate brooch in the shape of a rabbit shown in profile. The rabbit is depicted seated with compact, rounded body and proportionally small head. The fore and hind paws seem to be truncated, but would not have been that prominent to judge from comparanda. The eye is formed of a punch and a small ear extends behind the head. The body is corroded and pitted; it is pitting that seems visible rather than recesses for enamel found on similar brooches. The lower surface features a broken and abraded double pin lug at the centre of the rabbit's rear, and a a…

A copper-alloy Roman probable initial T-shaped brooch, incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin (later 1st-century AD). The brooch survives well, only having suffered some post-depositional abrasions and slight pitting. The head has tubular wings, flattened slightly on their upper surface. They are apparently plain. The axis bar is largely obscured by the wings, but is can be said to have been made from iron judging by orange corrosion product both at the wing terminals and within the pin slot. The hinged pin is missing. The upper bow emerges from the wings initially at a…
