A Roman base silver plate brooch in the form of a wild boar. The animal’s anatomical features have been rendered naturalistically. The boar is depicted in a running motion displayed by the outstretched legs, the hind leg now partially missing. Carefully detailing has been applied to show the bristles of the mane. The reverse is unadorned and displays the original bronze hinged pin placed in the catch plate, now fixed in place.
Date: Circa 1st-2nd Century AD
