SEAL MATRIX
Period
MEDIEVAL 500 - 1500 AD
MD Finds Event
No
County
Kent
Description
The matrix is flat and circular in plan. On the front is an engraved central eight pointed star or flower formed from oval rays/petals. This is surrounded by a legend which starts at twelve o'clock and runs retrograde (anti-clockwise) around the matrix. It is executed fairly crudely which combined with the wear makes the inscription difficult to read, it appears to read "+S':IOh_NS'F'A_ _MI". This probably translates as 'Seal of John son of Adam'. The reverse of the matrix is heavily worn and has a number of uneven decorative elements which may have been a raised fleur de lis common on such matrices. At the base of which is the stub of suspension lug. The suspension lug has been folded left on the back. The matrix is slightly warped, with a recent scar roughly across the middle of the matrix. The seal matrix is an off white colour typical of aged lead except from the scar which is grey.

Measurements: 28.18mm in diameter, 6.47mm thick (including the loop, 2.73mm without the loop) and 14.00g in weight.

Discussion: This matrix fits with a group of commonly reported simple lead personal seal matrices dating to the 13th - mid 14th, such as KENT-756138. This group of relatively simple non-heraldic designs and crude personal inscriptions belong to the 13th- century (Harvey and McGuinness 1996. 79-80).’
