Now, that's what you call a Dolphin brooch! Stunner, that man :thumbsup:

Mine are mainly the usual 1st/2ndC candidates, but I have found a nice little Aesica this year. (Sorry - it's figured in a couple of other threads but I just love it).

I don't think it's that unusual, but it was my first Roman Brooch find. I only have the two so far. :D

In fairness at the time of finding it, I didn't realise that it was actually a brooch.

My only Roman brooch was a partial one and not impressive. I showed it to a neighbour and she handed it straight back after trying (and failing) to look impressed :lol:

All your brooches are beautiful :Star:

That is stunning in my opinion as intaglios are normally missing :thumbsup:

Cracking brooch mate,I can't help wonder if the shape was given after one of the many Roman UFO sightings. Looks like a UFO 😲
