Medieval silver seal matrix. The object has a trilobed terminal which joins a hexagonal section shaft. The shaft widens to contain a circular matrix. This is formed of a central motif with inscription S'ARAZENTE. The motif has a solid circular border which contains a six pointed, star like, border with Gothic trilobed decoration in the spaces formed between the two borders. Inside this is a Crowned Gothic M, probably representing the Virgin Mary. Object recorded from a photograph so no measurements or weights are currently available.

The arms resemble the three lions conventionally found on the arms of England from c1195, but with two rather than three. The form of the handle and the style of the engraving suggest an early post-medieval date (the die has been rejected …
