Although spiral twisting does occur on some Iron Age and medieval flesh-hooks of this type, the fact that these are almost certainly from London substantially reduces the possibility of their being pre-Roman and they are sufficiently similar to registration no. 1894,0515.1 for a Roman date to be probable, although not certain.
