Title: An interesting Silver Pendant.
Post by: dragonsbreath(Paul) on October 19, 2018, 10:34:10 PM
Found on the weekend in Wiltshire at about 4 inches in the stubble with my mighty Kruzer.
It is a Silver pendant dated to 11th/12th Century with a "Hebrew Acronym" at compass points A.G.L.A.
Which stands for " ATHA-GEBRI-LEILAN-ADONAI "
Roughly translated as Thou art mighty for ever O,lord.
A truly great find.........Have informed my local F.L.O. re this treasure item.......PaulB.

Hi Paul, I see you have not lost your touch.

What a super historic find that you have saved.

Telepathy comes to mind with an item like that.

Looks as though there was once a centre piece.

Its some years since we met face to face.

I think you were working in the nursing profession at the time.

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.
