A heavily corroded copper-alloy Roman as or dupondius of Antonine date, possibly Macus Aurelius (AD 161-180) as Caesar, dating to the period c.AD 139-161 (Reece period 7). Reverse type possibly depicting Mars walking right holding spear and trophy. Mint of Rome. cf. RIC III, p. 184, no. 1322.

Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper alloy sword belt fitting of post-medieval date. The surviving portion comprises the lower part of an openwork mount, which has a backwards curving hook at the lower end. This contains a ring. The lower hole appears to contain a small lump of iron corrosion and this was therefore presumably a rivet hole. When complete, the fitting was probably similar to no. 357 in Brian Read's 'Metal Artefacts of Antiquity' (2002, p. 42).

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete but very worn copper alloy coin weight of post-medieval date. The coin weight is square and flat, measuring 19mm by 18.4mm by 4.7mm. It weighs 10g. Faintly visible on the reverse is a value mark: XXX. Nothing else can be discerned on the reverse or obverse, but this is likely to be a coin weight for a rose ryal, in which case it would date from the period 1619 - c.1700. See Withers and Withers, 1995, 'Lions, Ships and Angels', p. 40).
