  • Catalogue text

    A continuous design of paired leaves and quatrefoils, as in Cat. no. 794 [EA1990.801]. Again one of each paired leaves is filled with dots. The arrangement of quatrefoils is most clearly seen in this example; there are four different types.

    The size of the entire block used is best seen in this example; it was 13 cm. x 9 cm. The reverse is heavily saturated with dye. Radiocarbon dating has given a result of 1460CE+/-70.
