Morning All,
I am assuming this wee Roman (sorry no scale but its 17mm diameter) is a barbarous due to the crudeness and obvious mis strike...
Might I be correct?! Any knowledge much appreciated!
All the B

Are these latest finds (like the brooch, Magnentius and poss seal box lid) off that field where you're looking for evidence of occupation other than coins?

That brooch frag yes, and the Magnentius but not the "seal box lid" - I won't shove it up here - you've been kind enough to let me (and I don't want to over egg my pudding!) but I've got a video coming out this afternoon which will explain!

A nice collection of Roman goodies :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

A useful book you may be interested in is Richard Hattatts ancient brooches
It’s a visual catalog, if you google the title there are many places it is available
