Probably an Iron Age cast copper alloy mount. The decorative boss bears a striking resemblance to a great diving beetle. It has similarities to the Roman 'coffee bean' mounts (see LANCUM-39CE20 and LANCUM-BD34A4) but the plate shape is not rectangular and the execution is more Iron Age (see DUR-8078F8 and LVPL-59AD07) or possibly Romano British. It may possibly be from a Roman plate brooch (see SF-DC9058 and SF10009). Could date to anytime between c200 BC and c410 AD but most likely to date from c200 BC to c43 AD. The length is 21mm, the width is 17mm, the thickness is 9mm, and the …
