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 remaining two edges on each half appear to have been cut in what appears to be a deliberate way. One half of the object (fragment 1) is marked with three circles in a triangular formation next to the numerals XXX. These are likely to be a measure of capacity. The other half (fragment 2) has been stamped with a possible name reading (OCCOTHOM) written with what app…

Record ID: IOW-5B6DDA
Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete post-Medieval lead or lead alloy circular double-sided token (c. 1500-c. 1850). Powell Type 2/2. The token has a raised design on each side. One side has initials T C and the other side has initials H N (or possibly M). This token is greyish buff. Diameter: 16.0mm. Weight: 3.08g. Lead tokens had a wide variety of potential uses such as tallies, gaming pieces, tickets, weights, etc. and are believed to have been locally produced; they are therefore difficult to date precisely. Those carrying initials are generally deemed to be post-Medieval in date (1500-1850), those whic…

Lead alloy possible knife pommel. A cast tapered object with a rounded top, now dented and possibly retaining ferrous metal in the indentation, and a smaller flat face which bears a slot of length c.6mm, again with ferrous staining. The latter is suggested to mark the position of the end of a scale tang knife for whose handle this object may have provided a weighted pommel. Scale tanged knives were introduced in the later middle ages, though the good condition of this object - the enthusiasm of the finder for presenting his objects in as pristine a condition as may be contrived acknowl…
