Copper alloy possible mount. Rectangular bar with matching ends of smaller and larger square forms, each bearing the low relief image of a bordered four petalled flower, in cells which appear apt to receive enamel although no colorant remains. There is a thinner mid section to the bar between these larger plates.. In profile the object is lightly bent from its mid point. Spots of rougher texture on the back of the square terminals suggest this object was brazed to another at these fixing points. Suggested date: possibly Roman, 43-410.
