Copper alloy Mount. Cast slightly concavo-convex zoomorphic mount in the form of a bird, possibly a dove or pheasant, in a standing posture. The head is lost. Tail feathers and a speckled or ruffled breast are represented by moulded textures. The slight curvature of the back may suggest this was attached to a vessel or receptacle. The dove was associated with Venus, and pheasants - as creatures of exotic eastern origin - probably with Bacchus. The finder kindly notes possible parallel LIN-214201. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Length: 28.4mm, Height: 16.2mm, Thickness: 4.8mm, Weigh…

A cast copper alloy Romano-British mount, possibly for a vessel or item of furniture. The mount is three dimensional and depicts the bust of a bearded and horned male, probably a local representation of the Greek god Pan, who became the Roman god Faunus. The bust is well cast with all facial details clear; the horns are represnted by round stumps on top of the head and what appears to be hair above the temples; the horn stumps appear deliberate rather than being the remains of missing elements. Around the back of the head just above the neckline is raised mouldings representing hair -…

Complete copper-alloy zoomorphic mount, possible vessel mount of Roman date. The mount takes the form of a three-dimensional perched bird, possibly an eagle. The head of the bird has a conical downward hooked beak the the top of the head of the bird is cut away forming a flattened tongue-shaped upper edge set at a diagonal angle running from the top of the beak down towards the back of the bird's neck. When mounted this flattened edge probably abutted part of the object to which it was mounted eg. the vessel rim. The main body of the bird is D-shaped in section and sub-oval in plan…

A seemingly complete copper alloy vessel mount or escutcheon of Roman date. The mount is shaped like a human face, most probably female, with worn features. The hair is piled high on top of the head in a twisted design which also frames the face to either side of the cheeks and upper chin. Large ovate eyes are present beneath a deep set brow which extends into a worn nose. The cheek, mouth and chin area are fairly corroded though a faint ovate depression can be determined beneath the nose denoting the mouth. An integral neck extends down from the chin. The object is roughly D-shaped i…

A complete but damaged copper alloy disc mount dating to the Roman period. The face of the mount is decorated with a simple but abstract floral or rosette design, with the outer edges of the mount being crimped. Short linear scors on the edges of the 'petals' accentuate the design but there is no further detail. The reverse of the mount retains a stub of the integrally cast spike or prong, that would have secured the mount to a strap of leather item. Similar mounts are suggested to be horse harness decorations, military apron or baldric mounts. It islikely that this mount dates from t…

A complete (although slightly damaged) lead alloy (pewter) mount dating to the Roman period. The mount is circular in plan and flat with an integrally cast spike or prong on the reverse. This prong would have secured the mount to a strap or piece of leaterh or the like. The mount is decorated with raised concentric rings and outer plain border; the centre of the middle ring is recessed. The concentric rings form four panel however as no enamelling survives it is uncertain whether this mount was decorated in any other manner. Unusually the mount is made from a lead alloy (probably pewt…

An incomplete cast copper alloy vulva mount dating to the Roman period. The mount consists of a now damaged and incomplete cast plate that would have been hexagonal in plan, and possibly sugesting a Roman shield inspiration. The mount has a central raised oval boss with an incised longitudinal line in the centre, often thought to represent the vulva. Extending from the reverse are two attachment rivets with wide. flattened ends to secure the mount to a leather strap. These mounts were used as small strap decorations (for belts, straps or harnesses) and date to the c.2nd and 3rd Centu…

Copper alloy mount, presumably from furniture, in the form of a draped youthful male wearing a wreath of vine leaves and a winged cap, a petasos. The youth's identity is thus implied to be a syncretism of Bacchus and Mercury, the former by the vine leaves, the latter by the petasos. This is unusual to say the least; images of Mercury are common in the North-western provinces of the Roman empire and Bacchus also appears but to see the attributes of both combined is remarkable. The ties of the wreath hang over the shoulders and trail down the front of the bust's drapery whilst the cap i…

A Roman copper-alloy mount of trompetenmuster type. The openwork mount comprises three ajoining symbols, each of which is of similar size and form, being roughly 'C-shaped' and flaring towards a trumpet-like terminal. The two lower symbols are set back-to-back, their straight bottom sides giving the mount a forked appearance; the third symbol surmounts the lower two, its trumpet end at the bottom. The flat reverse has three integrally cast, circular-sectioned rivets. One of these rivets is located at the top of the mount and the other two are behind the left and right forks respect…
