Copper alloy possible ingot. A cast teardrop-shaped object of plano-convex section with five or more longitudinal flattened facets. The mass is close to one ora/ore, a Scandinavian equivalent to an underweight ounce, or six of its sub-units of 4.07gms.

Ingots of precious metal resembling this object in their form are frequently ascribed to this period. However, small ingot moulds sometimes retain the traces of use with other non-ferrous metals (e.g. Foreman, M. no. 87, page…
