A native British T-shaped brooch dating to the 2nd century AD. The brooch has narrow tubular wings, a tapering triangular bow, and a foot with transverse ridges and a forward projecting terminal. The bow is decorated with four lengthwise ribs, the interspaces of which are punched with closely spaced dots. The (missing) pin was hinged on an axis bar that passes through the tubular wings, and was secured by a plain catchplate, which survives on the reverse of the foot.
