Description
Single-reeded circular plate engraved with the depiction of a king clad in robes and vaguely Roman military dress, standing right with his left index finger raised and his right hand balanced a shield on the ground; no foot ring. Underside is engraved ".W.M.S." on rim and stamped with three shield-shaped marks at center of well, arranged in a circle, one depicting the sun shining down on a horse leaping left with the raised serif letters "E.V" at upper right, and the other stamped twice has three onion-domed towers above what appears to be a rampant lion against a brickwork ground.
