County: Essex

A fragment of a copper alloy pin or bracelet of probable Roman date. The terminal is an elongated conical shape and is decorated with approx. 12 ribs. Extending from the inner end of this is a section of circular cross-sectioned stem/hoop terminating in an abrupt break. There is a slight longitudinal groove/seam running the full length of one side. The narrow stem suggests that the object may be part of a pin or Roman or possibly early medieval date, although no precise parallels have been found for this function. Alternatively it may be part of a late Roman penannular bracelet. See e…
