Bent roughly inhalf and flattened, it tapers slightly from its mid-portion to slightly flared terminals, one more so than the other. The outer face is ornamented with a row of vertical (transverse) bar-stamping formed with a punch of amorphous blobs, to either side of a central double diagonal cross formed by two parallel impressions, and terminating at both ends with a diagonal cross followed by a single vertical impression. Discovered as part of the Huxley Hoard.
