The other face has seven identical raised circular motifs, each decorated with an incuse six-petalled flower; this motif looks as if it was created by using a stamp to mark th…

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: MEDIEVAL

Cast lead alloy token dating from the medieval or post-medieval, possibly the 15th-17th century AD. It is a circular uniface lead token with a plain reverse and a possibly inscribed obverse. The obverse is divided by a long cross into four quarters and there is a symbol or letter in each quarter. Depending on whether the X can be read as the letter X or the initial cross (+), two variants can be suggested: WPAX or +WPA. Prof. Elisabeth Okasha suggests that there are two likely possibilities. Either it reads PX (for PAX 'Peace') and AW (for alpha and omega), or it reads PAX and the …

Pewter 'horn book' with letters W, X, Y and Z in relief above a grid pattern. There are fragments of the letters Q, R, S, T and V above, separated by a horizontal line from the letters below. Full-size hornbooks (of wood and horn or mica) were used as teaching aids, but it seems likely that small lead versions were toys; most seem to be 17th-century in date (Lewis 2012, 98-101).
