This one is not in my edition of Benet's. It's 4cm in length, any ideas?

That is a stunner!

Edited to add if it's not in Benet's, maybe it's not Roman? Will be interesting to see how this goes.....

Not a Roman expert, although there are a couple of members on here who should be able to Id, what looks to be a great brooch.
Well done, :thumbsup:
