Iron Spring with Hooks, c. 1st-3rd Century

Iron alloy; 32mm/4.8gm

Seller's Note/ The ancient Romans ingenuity was certainly amazing; cement that set in sea water, ball bearings, and now, a spring! This finely worked double hooked spring, with double coiled middle, is another ingenious design that demonstrates the advanced state of Roman technology.  An important Roman technology item for serious Roman collectors.

FYI - We found this exact same spring in a well-regarded antiquities store...listed for $2,300! Click the 'images' tab to see their example. Are you kidding me? Our low price of only $95 is certainly better.
