Damaged lead vesica-shaped seal matrix. The matrix has a foliage motif in the centre and an inscription surrounding it reading: S:'AGNETIS FILIE ALAN, translated as "Seal of Agness, daughter of Alan". The inscription appears to be complete and the damage at the end of ALAN looks to be where the lead has been split and squashed rather than being missing. The suspension loop on the reverse is missing.

Fragment of a probably lead seal matrix. The object looks to be one quarter of a vessica shaped seal matric. The reverse is flat and plain. The face of the object has an incised line running down the long edge. This is more likely to be a mark caused during the cutting up of the seal rather than decoration, for the line runs through other decorative motifs and the legend surrounding it. The other motifs are uncertain although there appears to be a circle with a pellet in the centre. The legend is difficult to read: there perhaps a G followed by F' A?M. The last letter is probabl…
