Lead vessel repair or pot mend. A small cast plug to mend a hole in a vessel wall of thickness c.2.6mm. Patinated. The plug is neat and flat on the outer side of the vessel and preserves the more untidy form of the lead which solidified as it was poured into the hole on its inner side. The small size and neat finish may hint at a Roman date.
