Hi,

Regarding to Roman Brooch Uk people have upload.

I think this brooch I attach pictures is the conical Disc AD100-AD250 one , but not sure.

 I have always thought it was not roman until now.

Anny opinion about if it matchs roman and Disc one?

Thanks in advance,

Jose

Actually, it appears it is flat, in which case it is a flat disk brooch. More specifically a flat round lugged and enamelled disk brooch, with a hinge pin, c. 100 - 200 A.D.

Flat, but nielloed, not enameled. 

It has (had) a simple vegetal design in silvering and niello (which is a black paste made of silver sulphide) around a small button or knob of bone (which is now missing).
