Footnotes

  • An almost identical mortar cast four times with the same motif, is illustrated Michael Finlay, English Decorated Bronze Mortars and their Makers (2010), p. 78, fig. 122, and is attributed by him to an unidentified foundry, probably in London. This motif is described as 'rare' [ibid., p. 77].
