This bolt was from the 1st-3rd century AD. The roman locks were made primarily of wood and there would have been pegs that would fall down into the holes of the bolt. The key would be the negative of the bolt hole pattern and would push the pegs up and allow the bolt to be moved. This bolt is about an 1.5 inches long and is made of bronze.
