Unique ID: SF-E13BA0

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Unidentified fragment of copper-alloy sheet with engraved decoration. The edges are now curved (one concave, the rest convex) and it is unclear if they are cut or broken. There is a single wavy groove roughly parallel to the concave edge, with a pair of short grooves running in the same direction to one side, and two rows of short grooves running perpendicular to this on the other side. Neither the form nor the decoration help in assigning a date to this object.
