Probable hinged part from a two-piece strap end with a hinged plate (missing). Attachment bar missing, central equal-armed, cross-shaped hole, terminates in a small loop which is broken. The back is flat.

Notes:

Egan describes similar examples from London which have the terminal loop at right angles to the rest of the strap end. There is also a suggestion (Henig 1988) that these were a form of book fastening.
