Undley Bracteate, as it's now known, dates from c.475 AD, around the time when the Angles were invading Britain from their Schleswig-Holstein homelands.
All of the gold bracteates made between the 5th and 7th centuries were amulets, fashioned with eyelets so that they could be worn around the neck, and created by Germanic migrants.
The Undley Bracteate is a type A, which means that as well as the inscription it shows the face of a human and is modelled after an antique Roman coin.

The coins have a helmeted head of the emperor on the obverse and Romulus and Remus being suckled by a wolf on the reverse, which the maker of this bracteate has conflated.
The runes are Anglo-Frisian and it is likely that the bracteate was made in Schleswig-Holstein or southern Scandinavia and brought to England by an Anglian settler.
Short runic inscriptions such as this are typical of the use and extent of writing in the pre-literate Germanic societies.

The hypothesis is based on the occurrence of the letter T as a motif on bracteates.
It is not clear, however, whether these bracteate letters indicate the mint, the issuing authority or something else.
The trouble with this is that the imprints are of the letter S and not T, as many had hoped and expected to find in Tønsberg.

Bracteates likely derived from Roman/Byzantine portrait medallions, presented by the emperor to forge personal and political alliances.
Here, however, the imperial image has been transformed into a depiction of what is probably a god from the Nordic pantheon, his oversized face balanced atop a galloping horse with horns.
With their skillful workmanship and allusions to the Roman/Byzantine world, gold bracteates conveyed both the sophisticated taste and high social status of their owners, who wore them as fine jewelry and hoarded them as treasure.
