Anglo-Saxon cremation urn, hand-made. Two graffiti: (a) on the shoulder above the decoration: D(is) M(anibus) (b) below (a), within a panel forming a compartment in the decorated band (for text and translation, see Inscription field below) It is apparent that the inscription is a modern forgery, plausibly based on a genuine inscription.
