Drawing of Tin Ingot, Praa Sands, Breage, Cornwall

The ingot weighs 3.8 kg and measures 18.8 cm x 4.6 cm. This drawing was created by R.D. Penhallurick and featured as Figure (a) on page 234 of his 1986 publication Tin in Antiquity with the caption " A circular, plano-convex ingot weighing 3.8kg bears a raised cross which must have been cut into the mould. The remaining ingots are all pasty shaped"
