Copper alloy and iron probable mount. Cast bell-shaped discoid mount with boss with a central pit on its concave upper side, waisted below this. The stub of an iron fixing pin protrudes from the flat base. This is of rectangular section, width c.7mm, and resembles a knife tang more than it does a fixing - an alternative identification as a post-medieval knife pommel might therefore be entertained. Suggested date: probably Roman, 43-410. Diameter: 16.1mm, Height: 17.1mm, Weight: 8.05gms

Copper alloy and iron mount. Cast circular bell-shaped mount with a groove running around a projecting central lug with indented centre.

Copper alloy mount or strap fitting, very probably dating from the Roman period, c. 1st-4th century. The mount is incomplete, but survives in fair condition. It is flat circular in shape with what looks like two lugs (possibly a broken rectangular loop) on the reverse. It is possible that it had some kind of enamelled or inlaid decoration on the obverse, but none of that remains: it is plan without any marks. If the reverse was a rectangular loop its function could have been that of a strap or belt slide. If the two lus were separate it may have been a decorative mount attached to lea…

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.
