Lead filling of a wooden anchor stock. It is composed of two parallelepiped-shape arms joined by a lead tab 3 cm long and a few mm thick. The back of the bar has a humped profile. Along the two longer sides, two protruding ribbings provide the two arms with a particular mushroom-shaped section.

The artefact does not show signs of biological degradation.
