cf. V, 5.1.Comment from Kidd, Haith & Ager 'Summary Catalogue' (draft MS)
Ennewitz, Gem. Glesien, Kr. Delitzsch, Sachsen, Germany; in Dr Klemm's MS catalogue his no. 261, a pair of shears, is said to have been found in an urn here; his nos. 262 to 266 are provenanced 'ebendorthin', it being unclear whether it is the site or the urn referred to; see registration nos. OA.646 and OA.467; also found were an iron buckle and knife; the pieces could conceivably all be from a burial of Roman Iron Age date
Possibly From Gustav Klemm (see introduction to registration no. 1868,1228.327); this object and registration nos. OA.285, OA.646, OA.647 and OA.281 may have been previously unregistered residue from the Klemm Collection
