A copper-alloy openwork pendant or hanger from a shoulder belt dating to the late second or early third century AD. The fitting is flat and leaf-shaped, with a pelta-shaped terminal. At the wider end, a rectangular strip runs the width of the fitting, presumably part of the means of attachment which is missing. The hanger appears to have therefore been miscast. The mount measures 52mm in length, a maximum of 42mm in width and had a thickness of 3mm. The mount weighs 14.2 grams. Compare with an example from Zugmantel illustrated in Feugere, M. (1993) Weapons of the Romans, Fig. 236, No. 176
