A fragment of copper-alloy object, possibly part of a crudely manufactured Roman bow brooch dating to the first to third century AD. The object is hemispherical in section and tapers slightly towards one end, which is broken. The upper surface of the object is notched horizontally, but the notches do not appear to form a coherent pattern. The object measures 19mm in length and 8mm at its widest. Alternatively, this object may be a fragment of a junction loop used in horse harness. See Chapman 2005, Figure T for examples of junction loops with similar terminals.

Above the break in the bow it is decorated with 3 semi-circular cross mouldings (the central larger than the two flanking it).
