Part of a large medieval single-looped buckle frame, or round section with lobes at ends of missing bar.

The buckle was originally sub-rectangular with incurved sides to the loop which projected beyond the bar, and a large grooved knop at the pin rest. For comparison see History Beneath Our Feet No 656. Traces of iron pin on bar.
