The object is a fragment of a Roman brooch, made from cast copper alloy. The wings of the brooch are sub semi-cylindrical, which terminate with wing caps. However the wings are not ‘C’ shaped in profile, instead there is a narrow back plate, and is therefore barley cylindrical. This appears to be intentional, rather than the edges of the wings being abraded. The caps have a central hole in each, which supports the axis bar. Around the axis bar the spring is coiled eight times, with the ninth coil being missing. The spring does curve upwards forming a horizontal bar, however only ha…
