Palombino marble mould half for 6 round tokens, with casting funnels. The two circular tokens on the left are of Fortuna, standing left, holding rudder in right hand and cornucopia in left, diameter 21mm. The circular mould at the top and top right is Minerva, standing left, holding sceptre in left hand and resting right on shield (diameter 20mm), the two moulds lower right show Victory standing left, holding wreath in outstreched right hand and palm branch in left (diameter 20mm). The mould appears to have originally been intended for 7 tokens, but the lower right mould was never incised. A nail, originally used to hold this mould to its partner, remains in the lower left corner.
C: Half of a hexagonal mould for 9 tokens, each inscribed with a C. A central channel and channels coming off the central channel are present, as are two holes in the corners to allow it to be fastened to another mould half. The shape of the tokens is not given, it is presumed they are circular.
