A medieval lead vesica shaped seal matrix dating to AD 1300-1400. The seal matrix is incomplete and all that remains is the bottom half of the seal matrix. The fragment depicts a central fleur de lis with a legend around the edge. The legend may read CI[]OISENIV. The reverse is undecorated and there is evidence of the raised rib down the centre which would have lead to the suspension loop.

Inscription: CI[]OISENIV
