H.M. Geake (A&E) identified: Roman key handle.
Very nice cast-copper alloy key handle, an openwork trefoil or fleur-de-lis with slender bars. Where these meet, a narrow neck swells into a rectangular moulding with 2 narrow transverse grooves. Below is another narrow neck before another rectangular moulding which has a hollow base. In this, some on the iron corrosion from the 'business end' of the key can be seen.
A. Rogerson (NLA), 18 May 1999.
