An incomplete copper alloy Roman (AD c.100-c.300) "military" mount, missing part of its circumference and one of its integral rivets. Overall, the mount measures 24.8mm long, 22.3mm wide and 11.9mm thick. It weighs 5.64g. The mount consists of an outer flat circular disc (made from a 1.5mm thick plate) which has a projecting domed circular boss in the centre of its front face. This boss is hollow on the reverse face. There is an integral rivet on one side of the reverse. There would have been another on the opposite side of the reverse, but that side has broken off. These rivets enable…

A late Iron Age or Roman copper-alloy mount. The mount is semi-cylindrical in section, rectangular in plan, and has closed ends. The convex surface has a large rib in the centre, with three narrower ribs to either side. An oval opening is located in the centre of the large rib, and this contains the remains of an iron pin or shank. The underside is irregularly recessed, but notably so towards one end. Traces of a white substance, perhaps lead solder, are visible across the recessed area.

A Roman (1st to 4th centuries) decorative mount/stud: The copper alloy stud has a curcular sectioned bulbous head, with an integral knop at the apex. The base is slightly flattened and has a slight collar. Protruding from the centre of the base there is an integral, square sectioned stud which tapers to a blunt broken terminal. The surface of the stud has a well developed mid grey/green patina. The stud measures 32.32mm long, and the head is 14.69mm wide. It weighs 14g. Webster (1995) illustrates similar studs, but these are more bulbous than conical in profile, for example Nos. 17…

An incomplete copper-alloy asymmetrical mount from a box or vessel of possible Roman date. Only part of the top of the object survives, the remainder of the object is missing due to old breaks, now worn. The top of the mount is cylindrical before expanding to sub-triangular wings which are D-shaped in section. Beneath the wings the mount narrows before terminating in old breaks.

A complete copper alloy mount of probable Roman date. The mount is circular in plan with an openwork triskele design, though with four tendrils rather than the usual three. Four straight arms project, each joining slightly off centre to create a central perforation, and continuing to the outer frame. Four knob-ended tendrils curve around the interior of each resulting sub-triangular cell and are joined to the outer frame by integral sprus. The knobs appear to be separately cast and fitted into circular recesses at the end of each tendril. The reverse is flat and undecorated. The me…

A copper alloy fragment of a larger object, possibly a vessel mount, dating to the Roman period (43-410 AD). The fragment takes the form of a swimming duck, a popular Roman motif. Similar examples of this form are recorded on this database including: BH-291876 and IOW-A8BE13, vessel mounts; SWYOR-ED78A0, a possible hair pin; NLM-8A6096, a finger ring and LEIC-EDEE81 (and others), a zoomorphic brooch. Given the fragmentary nature of this object, it is concievable that it could belong to any of the broad object types listed above. The fragment has a flat base from which the three dim…

A possible copper alloy phallic shaped mount dating to the Roman period. The object features a circular-sectioned shaft which tapers to a rounded point. At the other end of the shaft is a double raised collar on one side of the object. From the second collar projects two rounded knops. Between the two collars is an area of iron corrosion perhaps suggesting the method of attachment. There are other phallic mounts recorded on the PAS database, for example see WAW-7C0283.

An incomplete Roman copper alloy mount, probably an armour fitting, dating to the 4th century AD. The object is formed of a rectangular sheet of copper alloy with a series of five rounded protrusions along one of the short edges. There are two circular perforations along the longest edge of this object which cause two of the rounded perforations to form hooks. Between these is another perforation with a rivet in situ. The rivet has been bent on the reverse to form a hook. On the opposite edge there are a further two circular perforations, though the rest of the object has broken away …

A copper alloy mount dating to the late Iron Age or Roman period. The object is sub-circular in plan with a diameter of 22.12 mm and a jagged, irregular edge due to wear.

A Roman cast copper alloy mount of pointed oval or eye-shaped form. The mount is made from sheet metal and centrally is a low circular dome. The dome is pierced and through the aperture has been inserted a short split pin which holds an annular attachment loop. Around the circumference of the mount is a series of thirteen punched circles each with a central dot; some of the dots have broken through to make a hole. On the back of the object are remins of solder. The purpose of this mount is unclear. The shape may be intended to represent the human eye.

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.

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 -…

Copper alloy Mount, for a box or furniture. Cast turriform discoid mount with a long tapering blunt ended shank of length 21mm, probably intended for insertion into a drilled hole rather than to be driven or hammered. The finder suggests an identification as a lock pin, though the shank lacks any perforation so its operation would have to be distinct from that class of object; in appearance this resembles a modern golf tee. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Diameter: 17.4mm, Length: 31.7mm, Weight: 10.17gms.
