A probably complete copper alloy unidentified object of uncertain date. It is T-shaped, consisting of a long arm, oval in cross-section, with a much shorter, flattened, rectangular section attached to one end. The outer end of the long bar may culminate in a break although this is extremely worn. The surface of the metal is heavily corroded.

Because of the undiagnostic nature of the object only a broad Roman to post-medieval date can be suggested.

Length: 50.76mm, width of wider end: 9.92mm, thickness of wider end: 2.78mm, width of stem: 4.19mm, thickness of stem: 3.69mm, weight: 3.94g
