Record ID: HESH-7976E0
Object type: BEAD
Broad period: ROMAN
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a faience melon bead of Roman date (50-200 AD). The bead is irregular in plan and cross section. Originally it would probably have been sub-oval shape in plan with a central hole. The outer edge of the bead would have been ridged or grooved; a number of these grooves survive on the fragment. The bead is covered with a bright turquoise glaze; this seems to have been applied to the whole bead but has been lost in a number of places due to abrasion. The glaze itself is crystalline in places and appears uneven under magnification. Where this glaze has been removed a pale blue/…

Fragment of a dark blue glass melon bead of Roman date (50-200 AD). The bead is irregular in plan and cross section. Originally it would probably have been sub-oval shape in plan with a central hole. The outer edge of the bead would have been ridged or grooved; a number of these grooves survive on the fragment. The bead has been broken relatively recently as the edges are crisp and unabraded, the matrix of the glass shows frequent small bubbles. The fragment measures 13.2mm length, 12.8mm width, is 7.7mm thick and weighs 1.57 grams. The exact function for these beads is somewhat el…

Cast copper alloy bead of probable late Iron Age or Early Roman date (50BC-200AD). The bead is cylindrical and cast in one piece with a moulded exterior surface. This decoration is broadly symmetrical with three centrally positioned circumferential beaded ribs which give the impression of rope like pattern. Either side of these central ribs the bead expands / swells and then contracts forming a large swollen ring. At either terminal are raised bands similar to the central circumferential ribs which are similarly decorated. The interior of the bead is plain and undecorated. The bead …
