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 …

An incomplete zoomorphic copper-alloy mount dating from the Roman to the medieval period, c. 70-1400. The dating is broad as exact parallels for this object have not so far been found. The mount is broadly anchor shaped in plan and is characterised by openwork decoration, with an oval aperture at the top and heart-shaped space in the middle. The two equal arms at the lower part of the object appear to be zoomorphic probably in the form of horse's heads. There are two projecting lugs to attach the object making it likely to be a mount. The length is 41mm, the width is 28mm and the weigh…
