A cast copper alloy Roman figurine or mount in form of a duck (AD c.43-c.402), depicted as if on water. The body is eliptical with a pointed tail. Incised grooves mark the tail, neck and wings. The base is flat with a sigle integral rivit on the underside. Similar objects are recorded on this database, such as GLO-2DB925, SWYOR-EDAEB6, BERK-D903F2.

The object is 27.4mm in length, with an overall width of 11.5mm. It weighs 8.78g

Incomplete Roman copper alloy bird shaped mount. The object is in the shape of a board, though which species is difficult to determine. It is likely to be a duck or some other waterfowl, as these were common in the Iron Age and Roman period. There are two projections at the base of the object which appear to have once formed a ring. This suggests it may have been a finger ring or ring fitting. Similar examples have been recorded on the PAS database, cf. LIN-3AEB83. Dimensions: height: 19.96 mm; length: 20.06 mm; width: 16.03 mm; weight: 10.55g.
