Bow and part of the head and foot of a Roman cast copper-alloy initial T-shaped brooch with hinged pin dating to c. AD 60-100. Most of the head, the pin, and the outer and lower edges of the catchplate are missing to worn breaks.

There is no evidence of a headloop although one cannot be completely ruled out. There was a large transverse slot through the centre of the underside of the head, bet…
