A Roman gold earring. The earring is made of round gold wire up to 1.25mm thick that has been formed into a complete loop. It is decorated with three evenly spaced groups of grooved lines. It weighs 1.27g and has a length of 21mm. Although the object is a complete loop, it is clear from grave finds that it functioned as an earring. For example a grave discovered in Lexden Road, Colchester, contained a pair of these rings located to either side of the skull close to the ears. Presumably such earrings were inserted into the ear lobes and then had their ends secured by winding them …

Description: A Roman gold ear-ring of rectangular form, seemingly complete, though distortion obscures most of the front face. The edges are lightly scalloped and the simple openwork decoration comprises a design based on small crescentic piercings. It is not possible to determine the form of the centre of the plate. The long tapered hook, also distorted, is fastened to the centre of a cruciform brace which is soldered to the back of the main plate. Discussion: The ear-ring is Allason-Jones Type 11 (Lindsay Allason-Jones Ear-rings in Roman Britain, Oxford 1989, p8). Ralph Jackson reco…

A Treasure find, Roman gold ear-ring of rectangular form, distorted and lacking its hook. It comprises two plates joined at the margins. The front face is embossed with a decorative swag border with tiny circular indentations. There is likely to have been a central setting in this face but this is no longer clear due to the central torn hole through both plates marking the former point of attachment of the hook. The ear-ring is most likely to be of Allason-Jones Type 11 (Lindsay Allason-Jones Ear-rings in Roman Britain, Oxford 1989, p8). A similar example from near Sudbury wa…

Probably a gold Roman ear ring of Allason-Jones type 2e. The ear ring is a loop of gold wire (2.15mm thick). There is a butted joint which may be soldered, or the ring may have originally been penannular. The loop is decorated with incised transverse lines which run right round the wire. The entire loop is covered with these lines. A plainer penannular example of Allason-Jones type 1 is 2010 T287. In terms of age and as the object contains a minimum of 10% precious metal it qualifies as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996.
