A fragment of a copper-alloy object, possibly an element of an openwork belt mount or plate dating to the second or third century AD. The fragment comprises a flat rectangular plate with wider rectangular terminals at each end. These terminals are broken, indicating that the plate was originally part of a larger openwork design. The fragment measures 25mm in length and 8mm in width and is 0.75mm in thickness.

A small, apparently complete, piece of sheet copper-alloy, which has been cut into an openwork design paralleled in mounts and belt plates dating to the second and third centuries AD. The sheet possesses a central, circular piercing presumably for attachment. It is possible that this sheet formed part of a larger openwork mount intended to decorate horse harness or a belt as it bears some similarity to an example found during excavations of the Fortress Baths in Caerleon (Chapman 2005, 128, no. Sr.38). The object measures 32mm in length and a maximum of 18mm in width. It is 0.5mm thick.

An incomplete copper-alloy openwork harness or belt mount dating to the second or third centuries AD. The mount comprises a flat oval plate decorated with three spirals of openwork decoration. A flat, rectangular plate extends from one end of the plate. Part of this plate is bent back on itself. This appears to be post-depositional damage. Corrosion products (possibly mineralised leather?) adhere to the upper surface of this rectangular plate, giving it a darker, discoloured appearance. The mount measures 60mm in length and a maximum of 62mm in width. It has a thickness of 0.25mm.

Just over half of a copper-alloy mount or applique dating to the second or third centuries AD. The mount comprises a flat semi-circular disc with a central circular piercing measuring 3mm in diameter. The circumference of the upper surface of the mount is decorated with regularly-spaced diagonal incisions measuring 2mm in length. The underside of the mount is plain although some file marks are visible. The mount appears to have been pierced by punching a sharp object through from the front to the underside as there is a slight ridge around the piercing. The mount has a diameter of 30mm…

A copper-alloy mount or applique dating to the second or third centuries AD. The mount comprises a flat circular disc with a central circular piercing measuring 5mm in diameter. The circumference of the upper surface of the mount has a raised and bevelled edge created from reserve metal. Two further concentric ribs of reserve metal create three unequally sized ring-shaped cells. The outermost cell is filled with rectangular cells of degraded blue enamel measuring 3mm in width, separated by voids also of 3mm in width. These voids are likely to originally have been filled with enamel of …

A fragment of a copper-alloy belt mount or stud, probably dating to the second or third centuries AD. The mount comprises an incomplete flat lozengiform plate with scalloped edges. Incised lines decorate the plate and emphasise the scallop detailing and it is possible that the mount was intended to represent a stylised leaf or feather. At the apex of the plate is a small, circular piercing measuring 2mm in diameter. It is filled with iron corrosion products. On the underside of the plate, there extends a single circular-section lug terminating in a flat, circular end-plate. The fragmen…

A fragment of a copper-alloy belt or harness mount dating to the third century AD. The fragment comprises a small portion of a flat openwork plate, which was probably originally oval or leaf-shaped in plan.

A fragment of a copper-alloy mount dating to the second or third century AD. An oval suspension loop (which was not cast in one) extends to a flat, rectangular collar. Beyond the collar is a flat, tapering plate, which was probably originally leaf-shaped in plan. The plate is decorated with openwork motifs. On the underside of the mount, positioned in the area of the rectangular collar, is a circular-section lug with a flat, circular end-plate. The fragment measures 22mm in length, 9mm in width and has a maximum thickness of 4mm. The lug measures 4mm in length and the end-plate 4mm in…

A fragment of a copper-alloy enamelled belt mount dating to the third century AD. The fragment comprises a flat semi-circular end plate and part of one of the rectangular side plates, which originally would have formed one end of an elaborate composite belt fitting. The end plate is flat and decorated with three semi-circular cells for enamel. The cells are created with ribs of reserve metal. Only the middle cell contains degraded enamel, which is blue in colour. On the outer edge of the plate, at regular intervals are the remains of three circular pierced lugs. They are worn and broke…

A Roman copper-alloy mount with enamelled decoration. The discoidal head of the mount has a circular cell at its centre; this is surrounded by two concentric cells, with a separating moulded ring and a circumferential rim. Much of the enamel has been lost, but the inset in the central cell appears to have comprised a blue flower head with red centre and a white field surrounding. No trace of enamel remains in the inner ring. The few remaining insets in the outer ring indicate a pattern comprised of alternating rectangular cells of dark (blue or black) and light-coloured enamel. There …
