A folded fragment of sheet gold strip with a narrower strip threaded through and wrapped. Maximum length 13mm; width of wider strip 6mm; thickness 3mm as folded; width of narrow strip 2.5mm; weight 1.43 grams.

Broad period: ROMAN
County: Hampshire

An incomplete cast copper alloy openwork zoomorphic belt buckle of Late Roman date. The buckle's loop and openwork plate are cast as one, making this a Hawkes and Dunning type IIB.

The dolphins curve around to form the rest of the loop and one tail protrudes from the inside edge, adjacent to where the missing pin would have sat, although the other has been broken off. Part of the adjacent openwork plate has also been preserved. Working away from t…
