Lead pot mend with narrow waist where it would have passed through the hole in the pot. To one side of this it is a neat circle; the other side is much more irregular. Traces of reddish pot survive in the waisted centre, but not enough to date the pot-mend which could either be Roman, medieval or post-medieval.
