A 1st century AD, copper alloy, star shaped, plate brooch. The plate is 26mm in diameter with 8 points. Some of the points are slightly damaged. The front is corroded and rough, probably from where it originally had decorated sheet applique (Plouviez 2004:101). The pin has a single looped hinge and is broken 1mm from the hinge. The hinge is held on a bar between two lugs. The lugs are close to the edge, within a point. The bent over tip of the catchplate is missing.
