An incredibly rare roman ladies bronze and enamel frog style cloak brooch.
This item which dates to circa the 2nd century AD, still retains much of its original enamel inlay.
One rear flipper is missing and the fastening pin as shown, but all part of its history.
The fastening pin which was lost in antiquity is likely how it was lost in the roman period, as they often slipped off the cloak.
Ex.Lincolnshire excavations and collection in the 1970s.
As with all of my antiquities and coins this item comes complete with a certificate of authenticity.
