Its body features a sharp arched bow with an iconic trumpet head that gradually tapers into a flattened leg leading to a thin knobbed protrusion. A knurled ring decorates the trumpet head and the mid-bow knob, although it is now missing. The well-preserved, original pin extends from the wide coil spring and sits in a vertical rectangular pin plate.

Date: Circa 1st – 2nd century AD.
