A Roman pendant in the shape of a penis was hailed as an “important national find”.

It is believed to date between AD 43 and AD 410.

The antique jewelery is believed to be the first silver penis pendant found in England and has been declared a national treasure for a museum.

Retired real estate agent Wendy said: “The rarity is that it’s a silver specimen of a penis pendant.

“I have other bronzes that I’ve found in the past, but they’re not nearly as important.

“They had never found a silver one in England.”

Wendy, who found it in Higham near Gravesend, Kent, added: “I don’t think it’s really about the value of the thing, it’s about the interest.

“Some coins, for example, are just wonderful to look at.

“The last person to hold it was at that time. It’s been a long, long time sitting in the ground waiting for me to come by and find it.”

Under the Treasury Acts, an inquiry was conducted during which Coroner Roger Hatch read a report from the British Museum which stated: ‘This is the first silver object of its class and an important national find.

He approved the museum and declared it a treasure at the hearing in Maidstone.

Wendy from Lydd, Kent is waiting to find out what the Willy’s value is and she’s due part of the money.
