Copper alloy pin fragment. Pin, Cool Group 5C. Cast elongated head from a decorated hair pin, with multiple horizontal grooves interspersed with mouldings, two facetted, and with a tiny flat collared top. The shank is lost; the scar where it was suggests a diameter of 3.4mm at its upper end. This must have been made with a lathe, with the facets added by hand thereafter. The type appears throughout the Roman period though is most common in [the most productive] 2nd-century contexts. Given its fine decoration, a use in Romanised coiffure may be suggested. Suggested date: Roman, 100-410 …

Roman (1st to 4th centuries) pin: The pin head and short portion of the shank remains. The head is polyhedral, a cube with the corners cut off, and undecorated with the circular sectioned shank protruding from the base. The surface has traces of a dark green patina. It measures 14.94mm long, 8.42mm wide, 7.45mm thick and weighs 3.67g. Pins of this style could be attributed to the Roman or Early-Medieval periods, as this does not have a collar a Roman date is more likely. Similar pin heads are recorded on the database: SUSS-BF6623 and SWYOR-F635B6.
