BRIDLE BIT

Unique ID: LVPL-495C15

Object type certainty: Probably
Workflow status: Published Find published

An incomplete copper alloy bridle bit of Iron Age date. It is one end of a bit consisting of the attachment loop and part of the shaft. The rest is missing due to old breaks. The shaft is circular in cross section and is solid. The attachment loop is circular in shape with a circular central hole. Part of it is missing due to old breaks. It is decorated with three bands, one at each edge and the third centrally. The central band is divided into three ribs. This artefact bears a similarity to the bridle bits, such as SWYOR-AC9F74 and HESH-8AE2E4.

It measures 35.23mm in length, 17.39mm in width and 13.49mm in thickness.
