Copper-alloy mount of Roman or early medieval date (c. 43 - 1066 AD).

There is a further break running from the outer edge to the closest edge of the middle rivet hole on the straight edge. Small punched dots on the front and back faces may be re…

Copper alloy possible box mount. A plano-convex casting here taken to be a crudely cast representation of the mask of a maned lion. The convex display side bears rounded protruberances near the edge, taken as a mane, with central elements for the muzzle. The flat reverse is sunken and bubbled, suggesting the object was cast in an open mould. The lion head mount, and the leonine image generally, was associated with Death and funerary contexts in the ancient world. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Height: 31.6mm, Width: 24.6mm, Thickness: 11.4mm, Weight: 20.97gms

Copper alloy belt or strap mount, probably dating from the Roman or medieval period, that is AD43-1500. The mount is circular with a domed head with a circular indentation and central knop on the obverse. The indentation may have been filled with enamel, but there are no traces left now. There are two lugs on the back which were probably connected to form a loop - thus, it may have been a strap slide.

It has a flat circular head (approx 14.0mm dia) and to the reverse there is an integral circular cross-section rivet securing a rectangular piece of corroded iron.
