Copper alloy and iron wheel, Cast wheel with four equidistantly spaced spokes with slightly concave sides, and with the stub of an iron axle remaining at its centre.

Ben kindly suggests that the provision of an axle distinguishes this…

Lead cloth seal. A pair of cast discs joined by sprue which have been clenched together. The larger disc bears the Roman numeral XII.
