This looks very like a 5th to 7th century Byzantine belt end. 3 lug atachment is typical, check out Jaric, the Byzantine army on the central Balkans.

I think this obverse Image belongs with the reverse image of NARC 987 as the reverse of this coin is not a bristol mint but a canterbury one.

I am the original finder who handed the item into Angie Bolton as the FLO for the PAS in this area. This represents only a small part of the paperwork I have had back for this find, the level of expertise and depth of study has astonished me. This is the best type of resource for all detectorists to use, it has helped the specialists with another "little piece of the jigsaw" to enlarge their understanding of this forgotten time, and given me much more information than I could ever get on a find. When I found it, I GPS'd the location and called it "4marks"; any other details I later found out (initial translation) came from publishing in "The Searcher". But the help given by the PAS was fantastic and still I'm getting further information.

This is not a jetton. It's a "real de 3 e meia libras" portuguese coin, struck in the 15th century under king João I. Under the crown you can see the letters IHNS for latin IOHANES = João =John in English, and also the letter L for Lisbon mint.

This is a Samian mortarium as the from the 3rd photograph shows a well worn surface with grit and the circles patten is the base. It could very well have been manufactured at Colchester during the 2nd century. It is very limited with distribution in eastern England.

Bottom right looks like BB1 as it just has that type of look and is quite chunky. The date suggests 2nd to 4th century AD. Hand made with either crushed shell or other type of mineral material added to the mixture of the clay

Could the design be St John the Baptist and Jesus with the cross of light in the sky and the holy spirit in the form of a dove above? It would go with the owners name and is also a common theme on selas although I confess this does look more like a male and female figure

Katie Hinds wrote @ 13:28:33 @ 19th April 2011.

The recorder is grateful to a member of the public has contacted with the following information: 'The ownership title to these armorials was the subject of a famous law-suit in 1347, known as "Warbelton v. Gorges". I have written an article on Wikipedia of that title which will I hope provide more information for your description. I think you are correct in stating Warbelton/Warbleton to be from Sherfield[-on-Loddon?], (Hampshire, I think, not Sussex, the family was also associated with nearby Preston Candover, both near Basingstoke) not of the "Warburton" family of Cheshire as is sometimes stated in the literature on this case. My article needs updating in this regard. The Calais charter of 1347 refers to "John Warbelton son of Sir John Warbelton", and this fits with the Hampshire family's genealogy. The item is especially interesting as the 1300 Roll of Arms of Caerlaverock specifically refers to Ralph de Gorges bearing this armorial on his "harnois" (in French), which might mean horse harness'.
