Description: An incomplete lead alloy salt pan of Roman date. The object consists of two halves of a salt pan of flattened lead alloy each of which are rectangular in plan with a folded rectangular rim along two edges.

The other half (fragment 2) has been stamped with a possible name reading (OCCOTHOM) written with what app…
