A copper-alloy Aesica brooch of the early Roman period. The brooch is of the closed type, cast in one piece with integral semi-cylindrical wings and backplate. The long spring (now missing) is retained by a central rearward facing lug and pierced end plates of the 'Polden Hill' type. There are two knobs on the bow, two on the lozenge-shaped backplate and two underfoot. The arched bow and fantail leg each have a wide median triple rib between deep channels, the central rib is knurled, the outer ribs are plain. Fine single grooves define the edges of the bow and leg. The spring and pin are missing, the catchplate on the back of the brooch survives, minute traces of tinning are visible.
