Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A lead alloy probable bead of unceratain date. The bead is circular in plan and flat with a hole pierced through the centre. The perforation has an internal diameter of 3mm and would have allowed the bead to be threaded. Each face of the object is undecorated and it has a mid-cream patina. There are few diagnostic attributes to the bead and it is therefore difficult to date.

Dimensions: 16mm in diameter, 3mm diameter of perforation, 2mm thick, 3.9g.
