Cast lead alloy seal matrix of medieval date (1200 - 1400 AD). The seal matrix was originally circular in plan however it has suffered abrasion in the soil and some distortion. A rectangular (keystone shaped) element has been taken from one edge - and this probably represents the cancelling of the die making it unusable prior to deposition. The reverse face is plain and undecorated - a small lentoid shaped projection is present at the midpoint and a rectangular tab extends from the upper edge - in line with the start of the inscription. There is no suspension loop. The front face of th…
