I thought it was the tongue end of a LRB buckle, therefore agreeing with Alex.  If you are at a university go to the excavation volume, Corinth XII, which those at the excavation nickname the Telephone Book, though its real subtitle is Miscellaneous Finds.  Pat L.

Just going to post some from the last 2 weeks, some of them are not ancient but Romans are the majority.
I've just got a Minelab Explorer II and this is by far the best machine that I've had. My first treasure case back in 1996 was a purse loss of coins of Elizabeth I, mostly sixpences. I've been back to the site every year since hoping that the turn of the plough would bring some more up but with no luck until I used the Explorer last weekend and got 2.
The other highlight of the week was an Anglo Saxon sceat of Eadbehrt.

Even the commonest LRB would be a treasure if I found it myself, I envy you!

I find pull tabs in the most remote and unlikely places, even where I am sure no man has tread in 100 years, yet they are there.  tongue

Metal detecting is fun, but one must accept the fact that most metal detecting is more of a service to mankind as glorified trash cleanup.  Grin
