A complete iron cauldron hanger, probably dating to the Roman period. The handle comprises an arched strip of iron which is square in section. At each end, the strip thins and terminates in two oval loops. The loops are formed by bending the strip back on itself. Through one of the loops, there is threaded a circular-section wire which is bent and tapers to a point. The wire is kept in place by corrosion products. The hanger is 157mm wide and 7mm thick. The loops have a diameter of 15mm. The hanger weighs 45 grams.
