Cast lead alloy anthropomorphic mount of probable Roman date, likely 1st - 5th centuries AD. It is possibly an escutcheon or vessel mount. The mount is sub-circular, and forms the shape of a human face with an open mouth and lips forming a sub-ovoid. The cheeks of the face are squared, and the eyes are formed from two moulded pellets. The nose is raised and ovoid in shape, tapering toward the top. There is moulded relief on the forehead in the shape of an inverted triangular diadem or helmet with a decorative pellet in the centre. The back of the mount is concave, and there is one b…

An incomplete copper alloy Phallic mount of the Roman period, dating from c. AD 43 - c. AD 410. The object is 'T-shaped' in plan, the phallus itself being of triangular section, its straight sides gradually converging towards the raised, moulded tip. At the top, the testicles project at a right angle from the right and left hand sides respectively, in each case an oblique ridge separating the rounded moulding from the phallus. The underside of the shaft has a semi circular depression or hollow; at either end of this hollow is an integrally cast, circular-sectioned rivet, the rivet at…

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

Roman, copper alloy, circular mount dated circa 1st or 2nd Century. The mount has a 1mm rounded, flat, rim within which is a flower-like shape. It has a hole in the centre which might have been for a rivet which would have attached it to a box for example. Surrounding the hole there are six evenly spaced, oval shaped cells which form the flower-like shape. Any enamel that may have been contained within the cells is missing. The oval cells and the spaces between them are recessed. The reverse of the mount is plain; however, the hole sits within a small recessed circular area. The edge o…

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 Roman cast copper alloy mount in the form of the goddess Minerva. The object is in a good state of preservation although the surface is rather worn and pitted obscuring some of the finer details. The face of Minerva is particularly worn but the general mouldings clearly show that she was shown life-like, facing forward with hair visible beneath the helmet along the forehead and the hair goes around the sides of the head. Her nose has been lost, through wear and corrosion. Minerva wears a high Corinthian helmet with a large crest which has a groove across the top and tapering sides. T…

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. At the neck of the figure are two transverse grooves, possibly suggesting a neck-ring or collar. One arm is longer than the other flaring outwards forming a sub-triangular 'palm'. 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
