The left and right perimeters of the terminal are decorated with four incised straight lines. A straight incised line is located from the centre of the terminal and travels to the outer edge.

Description Treasure reference 2018 T563: an Early Medieval silver Carolingian silver mount, partly gilded and inlaid with niello, and decorated with Carolingian-style plant ornament.
