About this object

Bent roughly in half and flattened, it tapers strongly from an expanded mid-portion towards the terminals, the extant example of which is rounded. The outer face is ornamented with a row of vertical (transverse) bar-stamping formed with a punch with a raised median line and serrated edges, to either side of a central diagonal cross comprising four impressions with a part stamp impression in each of its angles. Discovered as part of the Huxley Hoard.
