SPOON

Unique ID: IARCH-1BCD92

Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Portion of the bowl of a large spoon of cignus type with an inscription. About a quarter of the oval bowl survives and the handle, which would have been bent or coiled and would have terminated in a bird’s head, is broken away very near its attachment to the bowl. There is a slight keel beneath the bowl. The inscription was engraved in a right-handed direction, LIX, almost certainly "utere felix". Report by C Johns. Length 37mm
