VESSEL

Unique ID: BM-AE892C

Object type certainty: Possibly
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A lead-alloy object possibly a pot mend dating to the Roman period. The object is rectangular in plan and hemispherical in section, although slightly mis-shapen. On the underside, at each end, are two flat circular lugs, presumably for attachment to a vessel. The object does bear some resemblance to a 'caterpillar' stud from Roman harness and it is also possible that this is a miscast example. The object measures 29mm in length, a maximum of 7mm in width and 2mm thick. The two sub-circular lugs on the underside each measure 5mm and 6mm in width respectively.
