A complete copper-alloy lion-headed mount of Roman date. The artefact is circular in plan, its diameter gradually decreasing towards the top, in a series of clearly defined steps. At the base is a plain, almost vertical rim which is damaged in places. A concentric groove separates this rim from a less steeply angled step, the surface of which has been incised with a number of short, radiating grooves, creating the impression of a mane. The next upwards step, the face, has a vertical side and its upper surface bears a pair of ring-and-dot punch marks, representing the eyes, and two or t…

An incomplete enamelled copper alloy pelta shaped mount or strap fitting, of Roman dating (AD 43 to AD 410). The mount is incomplete, with the attachment spikes being broken and some of the enamel is missing, presumed lost in antiquity. The mount consists of a pelta shaped plate, with a circular sectioned attachment spike extending from the centre of the opposing shorter sides which bend over (perhaps to originally form a bracket?). The remains of blue enamel is present on the front of the pelta, with a raised border around the edge, to retain it. A pellet is present at the centre. T…

An enamelled copper-alloy mount dating to the Roman period, probably circa AD100-300. The mount is circular, flat, and has a rearward lip at the perimeter, thus making the reverse somewhat concave.

These bands are separated by reserve metal. The outer band is decorated with alternating square cells of blue and red enamel respectively.

An incomplete copper-alloy Roman mount. This mount comprises a rectangular plate (now damaged), with part of a curved projection on the top left-hand corner. A panel of enamelled cells occupies most of the upper surface of the plate. Two lozenge-shaped cells are located at the centre, set side-by-side and retaining parts of their dark blue insets. A border of inward-pointing triangular cells surrounds these lozenges; one retains its entire red enamel inset, and traces of red survive in two of the others. An incised groove extends around the panel of cells, with a border of interlockin…

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.

A Roman copper alloy figurine of a lion which appears to have functioned as a mount. The object depicts a lion in a seated position, crouched on all four limbs which are under the body. This forms a sub-rectangular shape in plan with the head protruding up and out and the forearms extending forward in a sphinx like pose. The lions tail is folded along its spine and drapes to the animals right. The head is disproportionately large and also turned to the animals right. The facial features are exaggerated with a large bulbous nose, exaggerated brow ridge, raised cheeks and an open mouth. …

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.
