Copper alloy Dolphin type brooch of plain and simple form. In profile it has the typical bow shape of a Dolphin brooch with a chunky bow humped at the head and tapering towards its foot. The plain wings are distorted but the semi-circular recess on their reverse, which accommodated the spring mechanism, is still visible. Part of the rearward facing hook on the head of the brooch survives; however, most of the catchplate and the spring and pin mechanism are missing. The surface of the brooch is pitted. Probably dates to the second half of the first century AD. For parallels cf. Hattatt…

Incomplete copper alloy Roman plate brooch of the Tutulus type, missing its pin and catchplate and about a third of the surface of the plate itself.

The truncated cone has a beaded rim 8.4mm in diameter and central rounded boss (3mm diameter) slightly higher. Around the base are a pair of grooves with a rib between. The edge of the plate itself (around this) projects outwards and…

The wings have a 23.2mm span and are flat to the front and rounded to the reverse (D-shaped in section).

Fragment of copper alloy Roman bow brooch, consisting of the lower bow and catchplate. At the break the bow is D-shaped in section, but two deep grooves run vertically from the break lessening in depth as they approach the foot, and creating between them a mid-rib, so the D-shaped section becomes rather more trefoil-shaped. Behind the grooves the bow is decorated on both sides in a vertical line of punched ?dots, reaching on one side to the foot and stopping at the top of the catchplate on the other. This line is flanked on its other side by another incised line, on both sides. The cat…

Copper alloy Roman dolphin brooch, complete except for the missing spring mechanism and pin. The patina is green and smooth and the brooch itself substantial and well-made. The bow and the wings are ever so slightly bent out-of-kilter. The wings are quite chunky and semi-circular in shape, with a concave depression running the width, for the spring mechanism. Above this is a substantial rectangular lug with a 2mm diameter pierced hole and a notch at its end just behind the top of the bow (or dolphin hump). To the front, the wings are decorated with two incised lines at each open end, o…
