A Roman bronze mirror with large circular body and wide, flattened handle.
Mirrors such as these were usually lined on the surface with tin, which allowed them to be polished to give a better reflective side. A small amount of tin still remains but the majority of the mirror displays the oxidised bronze base beneath.
Measurements: 21.5cm length, 14.4cm width.
