Possible fragment from a vessel mount, possibly originating from an organic vessel, the contextual placing of the find may suggest a Roman date for the find. The mount has an expanded rim with a series of transverse ridges over the top. The rim has a slight plain inturn, before a low moulding defining a decorative panel consisting of a moulded vertical line, which meets a pair of moulded diagonal lines at the top. There is no obvious means of attachment. The rear of the piece is plain.
