Crescent form with ball terminals and hollow back. Integral spiral support and suspension eye. A similar example with spiral support was discovered at the Roman legionary fortress, Isca Augusta, at Caerleon, Wales. The fortress at Caerleon was occupied by Legio II Augusta, (Augustus’ Second Legion), which, led by the future emperor Vespasian, invaded Britannia in 43 BC in a campaign against the Durotridges (Celts) and Dumnonii Tribes. The fortress was built about 75 AD and occupied until about 300 AD. The pendant represented Luna, Goddess of the Moon and the ball terminals probably are references to Diana and Juno, both identified as moon goddesses. 1 ½” height in fine condition with the gold surface restored for modern wear.
