Description: An enamelled mount or strap fitting of the Roman period. The mount is circular with four equally spaced peripheral lugs (one of which is missing). The front of the plate is slightly concave, at the centre is a pronounced upwardly projecting boss which is surrounded by two concentric grooves. A substantial amount of a yellow coloured substance of an undetermined nature (possibly enamel) covers the front of the plate. On the back of the mount are two attachment lugs and traces of the undetermined yellow substance.

Circular Mount https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/roman/mounts/circular-mount-56025.html Sat, 10 Apr 2021 16:15:26 GMT Mounts Circular Mount  
Description: A cast and enamelled circular mount dating to the Roman period. The face is decorated with six radiating spokes that form a wheel effect around a central roundel. Each spoke is formed with thin strips of alternating blue and white enamel, the triangular cells between then infilled with solid red enamel. The central cell also retains red enamel, and partial pieces of blue and white enamel. On the back of the mount the centre is dished, and there are two peripheral T-shaped lugs (now incomplete) for attachment.

Two of the red triangular cells have a small round depression within them, which can be compared with the same decorative feature applied to enamelling on UKDFD 35973, which interestingly, also has the same form of attachment fittings on the back.

Circular Mount https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/roman/mounts/circular-mount-55353.html Tue, 26 May 2020 19:46:33 GMT Mounts Circular Mount  
Description: A copper-alloy baldrick or furniture mount of the Roman period. The mount is circular with two raised concentric bands of decoration, at the centre is an upwardly projecting cone which is reminiscent of the 2nd - 3rd-century brooches. The remains of an iron attachment fitting are present on the back of the mount.

Triskele Mounts https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/roman/mounts/triskele-mounts-54260.html Thu, 14 Feb 2019 21:38:27 GMT Mounts Triskele Mounts  
Description: Two similar cast copper-alloy mounts found in adjacent fields within approximately 500 metres of each other. The mounts are decorated with a recessed triskele motif of late Celtic inspiration, which is also found on disc brooches and strap fittings of the early Roman period (e.g.. UKDFD 41357 and UKDFD 50319). The recesses, now empty, would originally have contained enamel. The method of attachment was possibly via embedded iron fittings, corroded remains of which are visible on the bases of both mounts.

Pelta-Shaped Mount https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/roman/mounts/pelta-shaped-mount-54233.html Sun, 10 Feb 2019 11:57:11 GMT Mounts Pelta-Shaped Mount  
Description: A pelta-shaped cast copper-alloy mount of the Roman period. The mount is flat with two horizontally opposed circular holes at the centre, but otherwise undecorated. The original means of attachment appears to have been two studs or rivets located on the vertical centre line, one near the top and one near the bottom. However, the remnants of these are now flush with the surface on both sides of the mount, and two additional stumps are apparent on the upper right side of the back face. This suggests the possibility of a makeshift repair after the original studs failed.

The generally similar mount cited in References below is described as probably a balteus mount (i.e. for a belt or baldric), but similar mounts were also used on horse-harness (e.g. UKDFD 24743).

The recorder notes that the find was made on a predominantly Roman site.

Mount (?) https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/roman/mounts/mount-28496.html Sun, 21 Nov 2010 00:00:00 GMT Mounts Mount (?)  
Description: A zoomorphic copper-alloy object of the Roman period, possibly a mount. It is moulded in the form of a swimming duck or other water bird, and has a (broken) shaft projecting downwards from the underside. The shaft is sub-rectangular in section with chamfered corners, and tapers along its length such that it is largest at the point of fracture.

Identified as possibly a hair pin on the PAS database.

Mount/Stud https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/roman/mounts/mount-stud-32525.html Fri, 05 Aug 2011 00:00:00 GMT Mounts Mount/Stud  
Description: A copper-alloy mount or stud of the Roman period. The mount is circular with a slightly concave; recessed front, the entire surface has a base layer of blue enamel, to which an overlay of red enamel has been applied centrally. The back of the mount is convex with a central protrusion, probably the remains of an attachment lug.

Zoomorphic Mount or Terminal https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/roman/mounts/zoomorphic-mount-or-terminal-34185.html Thu, 20 Oct 2011 00:00:00 GMT Mounts Zoomorphic Mount or Terminal  
Description: A zoomorphic copper-alloy mount or terminal of the Roman period. It consists of an an oval section vertical stem, the upper end of which divides into two arms of unequal length. The shorter arm is angled upwards at approximately 45 degrees and terminates with a bird of prey moulded in full three-dimensional relief, perched on the end. The bird, probably an eagle, has a hooked beak and wing-feathers depicted by incised chevrons. The longer arm curves upwards from the junction with the stem until the two elements are parallel. It terminates with a couped goat's head, finely modelled in full three-dimensional relief, with open mouth, horns that curve downwards and backwards, and ring-and-dot eyes. The exact nature of the object's use is uncertain.

Zoomorphic Mount https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/roman/mounts/zoomorphic-mount-49178.html Fri, 25 Sep 2015 00:00:00 GMT Mounts Zoomorphic Mount  
Description: A Romano British decorative mount in the form of an animals head, possibly that of a dog. It has two pointed ears and long pointed muzzle. The facial details, if any, are lost to corrosion and wear. There is an iron attachment point through the forehead to the neck area. Possibly from furniture or vessel. Stylistically, the object can be compared to; BUC-3ECE21 & HAMP-8F0C57.

Vessel Mount https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/roman/mounts/vessel-mount-7857.html Sun, 01 Jul 2007 00:00:00 GMT Mounts Vessel Mount  
Description: A cast copper-alloy vessel mount of the Roman period. It consists of a crescentic base, which is curved to match the profile of the vessel, and a central sub-spherical knob, which is pierced to carry the handle. The knob has moulded grooves, both circumferential and radiating from the top centre. There are traces of solder present on the curved face of the crescent.
