Copper alloy zoomorphic decorative mount, possibly from a military fitting or copper vessel of probable Roman date (50-410 AD). The mount takes the form of a three-dimensional perched bird in the form of an imperial eagle with neck outstretched and wings part- folded and head turned to the left side. The end of the wings is marked by a horizontal step, beyond which the feathers of a protruding tail are represented as a short semi-circular extent with feathers incised. The feathers are represented by incised scale-like arcs in rows confined by straight incised lines, converging on the b…

Copper alloy possible mount. Cast disc with a bevelled edge on which appear c.30 small juxtaposed cells which retain a dull red colorant. The cells may originally have been rectangular, though some have lost their outer edges to wear. A rough central cut-out suggests from its form the excision of an embedded object or area in the form of a star with eight points. The back bears a short pair of of diameter 2mm and similar length. The finder kindly suggests this to be a Roman plate brooch, but the features rehearsed above do not appear in Mackreth's (2011) corpus, and there is neither a …

A complete copper-alloy openwork harness pendant dating to the 3rd century AD. The pendant comprises a flat, roughly oval or leaf-shaped plate. It has a smooth obverse but a concave, unfinished reverse with two short lugs which clearly attached the mount to a leather strap, belt or flap. The outer edges of the pendant are bevelled, whilst the inner openwork decoration is rectangular in section. There are two small loop, set at a right angle to the mount, at the bottom, possibly for a similarly looking openwork harness pendant to hang off the mount. The plate is decorated with openwork …

Incomplete cast copper alloy military belt mount with a pelta-shaped plate and crescentic openwork and a large rectangular hooked lug on the back. This half of the belt mount has bifid knops opposite the openwork, on either side, below the trefoil edge which has three broken stems that would have extended into three parallel connecting bars and then expanded into a mirror image of this existing terminal. There may have been a rivet on the back of the missing terminal to attach it to a leather strap, and the hooked lug on the back of this terminal may have clasped on to the eye-section …

Copper alloy and iron mount. A small cast bell-shaped mount with a concave face with central boss; the latter bears a central pit which may suggest the object has been finished on a lather. Rust on end of the cylindrical shank suggests the stub of an iron fixing pin remains embedded. Probably from a box as this is smaller than most examples of this form. The grey tint may suggest the prominent presence of lead or tin in the metal mix. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Diameter: 15.9mm, Height: 8.9mm, Weight: 6.77gms

Cast lead alloy anthropomorphic mount of probable Roman date, likely 1st - 5th centuries AD. It is possibly an escutcheon or vessel mount. The mount is sub-circular, and forms the shape of a human face with an open mouth and lips forming a sub-ovoid. The cheeks of the face are squared, and the eyes are formed from two moulded pellets. The nose is raised and ovoid in shape, tapering toward the top. There is moulded relief on the forehead in the shape of an inverted triangular diadem or helmet with a decorative pellet in the centre. The back of the mount is concave, and there is one b…

An incomplete copper alloy Phallic mount of the Roman period, dating from c. AD 43 - c. AD 410. The object is 'T-shaped' in plan, the phallus itself being of triangular section, its straight sides gradually converging towards the raised, moulded tip. At the top, the testicles project at a right angle from the right and left hand sides respectively, in each case an oblique ridge separating the rounded moulding from the phallus. The underside of the shaft has a semi circular depression or hollow; at either end of this hollow is an integrally cast, circular-sectioned rivet, the rivet at…

Silver mount fragment. Cast concavo-convex arm with a collar and rounded knop at one end; broken at the other. The back is rough, possibly suggesting the object to have been cast in an open mould. There is a faintly phallic appearance to the object, though whether this impression would be enhanced or weakened were the object complete is uncertain. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. In view of the suspected age and material this object is to be subjected to the Treasure process, ref. 2017 T356. Length: 33.4mm, Width: 7.3mm, Thickness (at terminal knop): 3.8mm, Weight: 2.62gms

A copper alloy zoomorphic probable mount, likely of Roman date, c. AD 43-410. The mount is cast into the form of a stylised 3-dimentional depiction of a sitting bird, possibly a duck.

Roman, copper alloy, circular mount dated circa 1st or 2nd Century. The mount has a 1mm rounded, flat, rim within which is a flower-like shape. It has a hole in the centre which might have been for a rivet which would have attached it to a box for example. Surrounding the hole there are six evenly spaced, oval shaped cells which form the flower-like shape. Any enamel that may have been contained within the cells is missing. The oval cells and the spaces between them are recessed. The reverse of the mount is plain; however, the hole sits within a small recessed circular area. The edge o…

Incomplete cast copper alloy mount of Roman date. The mount is circular with a moulded front and flat reverse. The mount depicts Medusa looking forwards with wavy hair framing the face and possibly the rounded nubs of two wings protruding from the top of the head amongst the hair. No means of affixing the mount is present on the reverse which implies it was soldered or embedded onto the vessel or furniture item from which it came. Similar to DENO-D88461 Mounts of this type are not closely datable and it is therefore dated broadly to the Roman period, AD. c.43-300.

An incomplete and worn hammered sheet-metal copper-alloy Roman pelta-shaped belt mount probably dating to the 3rd century AD. Description: The mount is pelta shaped in plan and flat. Both of the original curved upward facing terminals have broken short of their intended form, whilst a small section of the central projection remains but this has also broken short of its intended length. On the reverse, an integral circular in section shank projects at 90 degrees to the body of the mount, and terminates in a wide flattened head; this would have secured the mount to a leather strap.

A Roman cast copper alloy mount in the form of the goddess Minerva. The object is in a good state of preservation although the surface is rather worn and pitted obscuring some of the finer details. The face of Minerva is particularly worn but the general mouldings clearly show that she was shown life-like, facing forward with hair visible beneath the helmet along the forehead and the hair goes around the sides of the head. Her nose has been lost, through wear and corrosion. Minerva wears a high Corinthian helmet with a large crest which has a groove across the top and tapering sides. T…

A copper alloy mount of Roman to Medieval date. The object is anthropomorphic in the form of a standing figure with arms outstretched. The head is rounded with a transverse groove suggesting the hair line and a raised oval nose. The rest of the facial features are too worn to distinguish. At the neck of the figure are two transverse grooves, possibly suggesting a neck-ring or collar. One arm is longer than the other flaring outwards forming a sub-triangular 'palm'. The opposite arm is rounded and possibly incomplete. The legs are straight with the rounded feet facing out to the sides. …

A copper alloy probable Roman mount, dating to the period c.AD 300-410. The mount is trapezoidal in plan with a worn break at the narrower terminal, which has left a rivet hole open. Decoration comprises a border of punched dots, and two diagonal lines of punched dots which form an X across the main body. A green patina is on the surface. Cf. West p.246, no. 8, which bears similarities in terms of its form and decoration, and is dated to the second half of the 4th century. It is therefore possible that this mount is a Roman 'propeller' belt mount, found on Roman military belts
