- Curator's comments
- See Curatorial comments in the entry for BM 16 in this series.
- Not on display
- The inner face (narrative) is heavily damaged and bears the scars of two large iron cramps used to attach the crossbar to another piece of stone at some period. The narrative scene is scarcely visible save for a shadowy set of human figures close to the centre of the roundel. The outer face is well preserved but the tenons, though in place, are both damaged.
