An incomplete Medieval copper-alloy mount dating to circa AD 1150-1400. The extant element is broadly trapezoidal in plan. Its faces are flat and its edges rounded. One edge is broken whilst the other is a rounded terminal. The sides taper inwards from the break to the terminal. The front face is decorated with a single central longitudinal incision. At either end are slightly off centre circular rivet holes. The upper rivet is now missing but the bottom one is in situ, surrounded by iron staining indicating its ferrous composition.
