    • Ceramic tile fragment potentially made into a tesserae though they are usually cubes rather than flat and it's edges are very jagged suggesting it could have been part of tessellated pavement as there does appear to be traces of mortar, but this could just as easily be a result of bonding the tile in place. The fabric is red oxidised with moderate micaceous inclusions. Similar to PUBLIC-56C0CD (PAS database). Length 17mm, width 16mm, thickness 8mm, weight 3.45g.
