Copper alloy and iron sword pommel. Cast copper alloy terminal in the form of a ram's head with coiled horns, with a wrought iron tang of 13mm by 9mm passing into its collared end. The finder kindly suggests this may be a terminal for a patera handle; this reporter would prefer to see the counterbalance offered by this weighty piece as more apt to a fighting knife or sword handle. The ram's head is modelled naturalistically, particularly in regard to the angle down the front of its muzzle, as viewed in profile, with symmetrical grooves down the side of the muzzle and a balled terminal…

A complete circular hinged copper-alloy container for a set of (possibly three) nested cup weights dating from the post-medieval period, most likely from the 16th or 17th century.
