Fragment of a cast vessel handle or mount. The mount has two drilled attachment holes either side of a gently curved end. The beginning of the possible handle is defined by a low moulding present only on the upper area of the fragment. The handle has a ā€˜Dā€™ shaped cross section, which becomes narrower as it approaches the broken end.

Object type: LUG (HANDLE)
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Monmouthshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Probable handle fragment of copper alloy of uncertain date and broken at both ends. The piece has three ribs; one central rib and one each side, one of the side ribs is more pronounced than the other two ribs. The fragment begins to expand past the ribbed area and this section seems to be defined by an incised line at each end, and contains punched chevrons and diamonds, possibly originally filled with black enamel. This end possibly has an area with a concave profile, possibly suggesting the recess to take a pin for a hinge.

Sheet copper alloy strip, broken or cut along three of its sides, with one of the ends being bent prior to breaking. The outer complete edge exhibits a slight curvature and suggests the strip may have been curved. The piece is crudely decorated with a series of linear chisel marks forming two lines running along the strip. There is a further more continuous linear depression running along the broken or cut side.

The terminal is heavily-corroded and the corrosion has removed much of the detail, there are depressions depicting the eyes and a central ridge is evident indicating the position of the nose. Another depression surviving on one side only is likely to depict a ear. The surviving form and style would indicate a comparatively naturalistic de…

Copper alloy looped mount, probably of Roman date The cast mount comprises a sub-circular loop on an integral domed base (with an overall length of 40.3mm and a weight of 38.3g). The loop (35.1mm wide x28.6mm high external and 23.9mm wide and 20.2mm high internal) is circular sectioned (5 - 6mm diameter) and is undecorated. There is a slight suggestion of wear facets on the interior of the top of the loop, which if correct, would seem to suggest strap-rubbing. The base is circular and hemispherical (with a basal diameter of 26.2mm and a height of 11mm) and has a grooved border ar…
