A Roman copper alloy nail cleaner of Crummy's type 2b, probably dating to c. AD 75-250. The object consists of a flat blade, 0.8mm thick, in the form of a stylised leaf. With a transverse oval plate at its shoulders, 14.1mm thick, from the bottom of which projects a long, narrow sub-rectangular neck which bifurcates and terminates in a split end of two points, 3.9m wide. The split oint is further defined by a V-shaped groove on one face. From the top of the blade expands a narrow shank, rectangular in plan and cross-section, 3.9mm wide by 2.1mm thick, and c. 8.1mm long. This narrows in profile at the attachment end to terminate in a flat sub-circular attachment loop, on the same plane as the blade. The loop measures 6.9mm wide and c. 5.6mm long. The lower portion of the blade is bent upwars at c. 45 degrees.
