Maple wood fragment from lyre, rectangular and hollow in section. One part is smoothed wood with a square depression for a plaque (1939,1010.203.76). A circular rivet hole pierces the depression, probably for the attachment of the plaque. The other end is fragmentary, with two tear-shaped holes, possibly for a fastening.
