An incomplete cast copper alloy vessel mount of Late Iron Age- Roman date (c. 100 BC to AD 100). The object is pentagonal in shape, formed of two plates of 5 rectilinear sides, joined together by a U-shaped connecting surface which is flattened. The two pentagonal sides extend beyond the thickness of the connecting surface, and this has been emphasised on the underside by two incised lines tracing the point at which these two sides join the central surface, demonstrating how they thicken at the nadir of the shape before narrowing again. The pentagonal area has a central hole measuring…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete lead weight with an iron attachment loop, probably dating to the Roman period. The solid-cast body is circular in section and is ovoid in plan. At the apex is the stub of a small iron loop, used to suspend the weight on a scale. The body of the weight has been damaged over time, resulting in a white-ish patina forming on areas of damage. A number of similar weights of approximately contemporary date have been recorded on the database, including WILT-749DD9 and SWYOR-799003 and the relatively similar DEV-65BB95. It is 35.8mm long and 25.2mm in diameter. It weighs 76.1g.

Post Medieval uniface lead alloy token issued by I B at Exeter of Powell type 2, probably dating to AD 1550 to 1800. The token has a slight raised rim around the front and back.
