Fragment of a copper alloy terret ring dating from the early Roman period, probably 1st-2nd century AD. Only the bottom quarter of the terret survives.

Complete copper alloy terret ring dating from the early Roman period, probably 1st-2nd century AD.

There is a moulded collar around the bottom of the larger loop, separating it from the smaller loop. The larger loop is oval with a circular cross-section all around but the top is much thinner than the bottom of the ring. This might indicate some wear from the leather rein or strap that ran through it. Numerous similar terret rings …
