Brent 1866, 164: The pair of shears measures in length 7 3/4 inches. Shears are unusual in the grave of a male, as the umbo and spear-head declare this evidently to be. Do the scales and the purse point to some civic calling? But an occupation represented by a shield, a lock, a pair of scales, and a dagger with a knife, must have been complicated and discursive.Pair of shears. Length 7 3/4 inches.
