A Roman copper-alloy mount. The mount is a circular convex disc with a raised rim and inner circle. It has a circular hole in the centre. The mount is similar to one found in Crummy 1981, no.4037, given an early Roman date in the 1st century. Crummy states this may be military in origin, though it is difficult to determine. It is also similar to another, with a central hole, which is suggested to be a jangle from a harness (Crummy 1981, no. 4618). The present item seems more robust that the examples illustrated by Crummy. It may, therefore, be a box mount rather than a harness item.

The face of the plate is slightly convex, and is divided into ten rectangular cells. Each cell contains an intricate repeated design of millefiori enamel. Nine of the cells contain a grid of squares, comprised in a grid of 4 x 6. The lower left cell (as seen in the i…

A Roman copper alloy lion terminal, possibly from the head of a pin or a mount for a casket or furniture, dating AD43-410. The object depicts a lion, laying with fron limbs extended forward and head slightly turned to the right. The fur and mane are created by a series od engraved crescent shaped lines. It sits atop a plinth, with a slightly bulbous cube beneath and a smaller plinth below. At the base of the lowest plinth is a circular hole, in which there are traces of iron. This would suggest an iron shank extended below. The metal is a very dark green-grey, with faint traces of oran…

Copper alloy probable mount. Heavily cast plano-convex discoid mount with two drilled fixing holes of diameter c.4mm towards its outer edge, one actually straddling the rim which passes around the edge. A motif moulded in strong relief depicts a hound with jaws agape and head lifted to the right, with its body coiled back on itself with a short stumpy tail to left. The forelegs appear together and are bent at the elbows while the hind limbs are more widely separated. The impression is of an animated rendition of an excited hound whose distortion to fit a round field is in part excused …
