An old but well made brass bib tap of mine recently started to weep at the water inlet compression joint. Dismantling it revealed that it consists of what appears to be a 5/8" BSP compression nut with an integral olive. The bore accepts 1/2"/15mm pipe.

I've replaced the tap with a ubiquitous 1/2" bib tap for the moment but I might like to reuse the old tap at some point.

Does anyone know where I can get 5/8" BSP compression nuts either with an integral 1/2" olive as originally or that accepts a loose 1/2" olive?

There wouldn't be enough room laterally to fit those in, unfortunately.

This is the nut in question, btw. It looks like it did consist of two parts, but in my case the olive has effectively welded itself to the inside of the nut:
