Rounded rectangle trimmed from lead sheet which bears marks of hammering, measuring 70 x 72mm, not folded, previously published in Britannia 20 (1989) 327-30. Surface damage in the top left corner, but otherwise complete and in good condition. Inscribed on one side in ORC by a practised hand using an instrument which has sometimes left a thick line (W profile), perhaps a metal nib rather than a stilus. In this script o, e, and ligatured i can sometimes only be distinguished by context.
