Roman Find: The Wild Man of Chester

This small copper-alloy stud with a stylised face may have been used to decorate a soldier’s belt or ‘apron’ - a series of vertical leather straps which hung from the belt. It is thought that these ‘aprons’ were worn for protection or possibly represented a mark of status.
