A copper-alloy Roman pin of Cool Group 5 (Cool 1990: 157, fig 4.5). The pin is circular in section, the shaft tapering from top to bottom. The head is formed of a wider section divided into two groups. The lower section consists of four bands of unequal size, each divided by a groove. This tapers upwards to another band with groove above and a dome-shaped top. The shaft is straight, with a small bend towards the tip although the original end of the pin appears to be missing. The pin is 98mm in length, 5mm at its widest point and weights 3.74.

A fragmented roman pin possibly of 1st-2nd century AD. Description: The pin has a median length tapering shank which has snapped just after a swelling collar.

The break between collar and shank has occurred in antiquity although perhaps not as old as the loss of the pin. Measurements: 79.86mm, 7.95mm (wide at the head, diameter) and 5.25g in weight.
