Roman Whistle Brooch

Functional Roman whistle with pin construction. The whistle brooch was made hollow in one piece after an original from Regensburg. The angle of the pipe was slightly increased after numerous experiments in order to optimise the tone.

Whether it is a signalling device, perhaps for military use, cannot be determined with certainty. The dating can also only be roughly narrowed down to the 2nd to 4th century.
