A copper alloy mount of Roman to Medieval date. The object is anthropomorphic in the form of a standing figure with arms outstretched.

County: East Riding of Yorkshire

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

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
