An incomplete hairpin with a bulbous shaft surmounted by a helmeted head mounted on a pedestal base. The head is very small and narrow in comparison with other examples and is better seen in profile. The crudely worked head is carved in the round and wears a crested helmet and the pin is made in one piece. The head may depict the Roman goddess Minerva.
