County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead cloth seal. It is uniface, with a castle or gatehouse stamped on the face. This record was left unfinished and without a photograph. It is possible the castle or gatehouse is a portcullis. The portcullis was "the main design for alnage seals in the late Tudor period... and continued in use into the early seventeenth century" (Egan 1985, 9). Alnage seals indicated the cloth had been checked for quality by a Crown official and that the subsidy (tax) had been paid.

The mount is irregular in shape and incomplete. Both faces are flat. The front face is decorated with Ringerike-style engraved lines around several openings. It is possible that the curving, tapering element along one side (around the largest opening) is the neck and head of an animal. The design is probably contains one or more animals but, as the mount is incomplete and quite worn, it is hard to distinguish more …

A worn 4th-century Roman clipped silver siliqua of Valens (364-78), VRBS ROMA, Trier, 367-75. RIC IX 27b/e & 54a/b. The coin is incomplete, now consisting of two fragments with a further element now lost. This fragmentation was caused when the coin broke at a weak point created by two holes which perforated the obverse face. The holes are suggestive of reuse as a jewellery item.

A post medieval copper alloy sword belt fitting, 39mm long, 22mm wide and 9mm thick with a weight of 6.5g. The fitting is in the form of a human face in profile, set within a curved frame (crescent moon) which continues, forming a circular frame, which has a six-pointed star opposite the face. From this emerges a long hook, with a fluted reverse, protrudes and bends forwards. There are two integral rivets issuing along the reverse of the piece. Andrew Rogerson has identified this as a sword belt fitting of man-in-the-moon type (Read 2008, no. 805). See SF-318D70, SUSS-2E08A5, etc. It…

An Anglo-Saxon zoomorphic terminal made of silver and partly gilded The terminal is hollow-cast, with a pyramidal socket of rectangular section which would perhaps originally have held a wooden rod. On the narrower sides are two 4mm-long tapering extensions, which could have accommodated ridges on the rod. These are also zoomorphic, and although worn, the shape of the muzzles, the eyes and upright ears can still be made out. A single large silver rivet with a rounded head is still in situ across the socket, running between the wider sides of the rectangle. The tapering end is in the s…

County: Suffolk

A two drachm weight from a traditional apothecary weight set. It is 15mm square (the edges being rounded), and 4mm thick. Each of the square faces is marked with a large figure or letter engraved upon it, which is the traditional symbol to signify two drachms. One drachm (3.89g) equals one-eighth of a troy ounce (31.1g), three scruples, or sixty grains. The present weight actually has mass 7.34g (= 0.236ozt, 113.2gn). It has therefore lost some of its intended weight, probably owing to corrosion. Apothecary weights of brass were probably introduced after the Apothecaries received their…
