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. The wings of the bird are sub-triangular in plan, tapering from 12.3mm at the front to a rounded and abraded tip around 6.5mm wide, and with a shallow triangular cross section. The top of the wings are decorated by broad chevrons of alternating incised and pecked lines, pointing towards the tail. From the flat underside of the wings expands the body of the bird, semi-circular when viewed from the front an…

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. This…

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.

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
