Copper alloy possible mount fragment. Plano-convex object of dense black metal, with deep longitudinal grooves on both its flat and its convex faces.

The groove on the convex surface is flanked by two sets of lightly incised lines forming rectilinear grids with at least five rows of cells, now highlighted by inlaid white material. The dark material of this object resembles that of a number of…
