Cast copper alloy Roman key handle/bow. Only the bow remains, having broken where it would meet the shaft. This is a deviant on the usual fleur-de-lis style handles. It has two curved lobes at the base with circular perforations. The upper section consists of a scroll motif with the ends curling back towards the centre. At the base, there is a rectangular section with two raised transverse ribs. This narrows to where it would have met the shaft. There is some iron corrosion, suggesting the shaft was made from iron.

Cast copper alloy Roman key handle. The key is incomplete with only the openwork trilobate or 'fleur de lys' handle surviving. On top of the central lobe is an integral globular knop. All three recesses of the fleur are in the shape of a key-hole with narrowed lower halves. The two outside lobes have a curved extension from their sides. The openwork lobes are situated on top of a double rectangular collar which is cracked in the centre. It then narrows to where it would have attached to the shaft but this is now broken. A similar example can be seen in Crummy (1983), figure 14…

A corroded cast copper-alloy key handle of Roman date. The bow consists of a simple moulded openwork trefoil design. The sides loops are small with circular perforations. The central recess is linear with rounded ends. The bow connects to a circular-sectioned solid shaft which may have had moulding on, but it is now very worn. The shaft is broken a short way down, with most of it missing. The object now has a variable mid-green patina.

Cast copper alloy Roman rotary key handle/bow. It is an open work trilobate/ fleur-de-lis design with part of the iron shaft still remaining. The terminal has a smal rounded knop and in the angles there are small extensions. The central bar separating the two bottom lobes has broken, leaving it more like a C-shape. The handle widens from the bow, and has two transverse ridges. It then appears to be attached to the iron shaft, broken almost immediately afterwards.
