Copper-alloy mount of Roman or early medieval date (c. 43 - 1066 AD).

No rivets remain. The hole on the curved edge has been torn in half with a tear that runs down almost to the corresponding hole on the opposite edge. There is a further break running from the outer edge to the closest edge of the middle rivet hole on the straight edge. Small punched dots on the front and back faces may be re…

Copper alloy possible box mount. A plano-convex casting here taken to be a crudely cast representation of the mask of a maned lion. The convex display side bears rounded protruberances near the edge, taken as a mane, with central elements for the muzzle. The flat reverse is sunken and bubbled, suggesting the object was cast in an open mould. The lion head mount, and the leonine image generally, was associated with Death and funerary contexts in the ancient world. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Height: 31.6mm, Width: 24.6mm, Thickness: 11.4mm, Weight: 20.97gms
