Spoon Copper-alloy with enamel Roman, AD 200 to AD 300
Found in the River Tees, Piercebridge DURMA.2020.3.2301
Found near Piercebridge Roman Fort, this copper-alloy spoon is missing its handle. It has the common mandolin-shape which was produced from AD 300 around the Roman Empire.
The spoon was possibly part of a matching pair, which would have formed the common saying “UTERE FELIX’, meaning ‘use this and be happy’. They would have possibly been gifted to couples.
