Well you learn something new everyday! I had no idea that the modified jettons you sometimes see were clothes hooks, not brooches. Well I guess they could be both but it seems that many were (they believe) modified and then sewn into garments and used as part of a clothes hook.

To find out more check out this Finds Research Group datasheet on the subject :thumbsup:
