The central elliptical plaque features two raised panels inscribed 'PATRI' and 'MATRI', translated from Latin as 'for father, for mother', flanked by broad ridged shoulders with curling volutes and tapering through to a keeled shank. Tested yellow gold, approximately 14g in weight, circa 3rd century AD, accompanied by an Oxford Labs X-ray fluorescence report stating the composition of the metal.
