Relief with a Christian devotional subject, cast and engraved in copper-alloy, circular with raised rim; obverse: decorated with three figures in relief draped and nimbed, the flanking figures winged, all three figures holding flaming torches; reverse: a cross and six stars incised in a border of cable pattern. Much worn and pierced in several places, scratchmarks on the rim indicate that something may have bene prised off the front of the relief, perhaps a glass or rock crystal cover?
