Copper alloy Brooch. Cast Dragonesque Brooch, Mackreth type DRAG 3.ax.Cast S shaped concavo-convex plate brooch with a cast pin wrapped around the 'neck'.

The body has decoration comprising a longitudinally divided pair of pointed ended cells, and is overlain by a central quatrefoil; these features appear apt to retain enamel though no colorant now remains. The 'tail' end of the brooch, presumably a near-symetrical pair with the 'head', is lost. Suggested date: Early Roman, 85-100…
