Cast copper conical mount probably dating from the Roman period, that is c. AD43-410. The mount survives incomplete with any internal attachment loops/rivets or bars missing. It is thus impossible to tell how it was attached to leather or wood. The cone is nearly complete with a chuck missing from its outer edge. NB The find was not seen by the FLO. Images and findspot information were kindly supplied by the finder.
