A silver-gilt, circular brooch with an inscription on both sides. On one side are the words IASPAR* MELCHIOR* BAVLTAZA (Jaspar, Melchior and Balthazar B the names of the three magi who travelled from the East to worship the infant Jesus). On the other side is the phrase * INMANVS* TVAS* DOMINE* AVR (`Into thy hand Lord '). The last three letters are divided by the pin of the brooch and their significance is unclear. In medieval times the names of the magi were invoked as protection against the falling sickness and were used as part of a longer charm against fever.
