Late Saxon incomplete copper alloy stirrup terminal. Most of the U-section tube which woule have attached it to the corner of the iron stirrup is missing (old breaks) and inside the remaining part is a hard concretion of soil. The lower end of the tube is extended into a long stylised animal head and neck, which curves round and is attached back onto the tube at open jaws. There is a small projection at the outermost part of the curved neck, which may represent an ear or a lappet. 11th century.
