If genuine, probably an imperial portrait (by comparison with other pieces of cavalry equipment), although pendants of this type do not usually show decoration of this type in this place. Without context or scale, it's difficult to tell.

Thank you Bishop. The piece is genuine 100x100, the unknown context, rescued by a fan of the metal detector. For the style of short hair, rectum fallen on the forehead, with the face of triangular form might it she be dated between the period of Claudio and Trajano?

Normally Tiberio-Claudian in date (with residuality meaning some pieces are found up to Flavian times). They are only found on early sites in Britain, south of the Severn-Trent line (so pre-Flavian).
