Notes

IX.2786 has a similar hilt. IX.1788 has a similar hilt in silver, with a lion's head pommel. For swords with similar hilts elsewhere, see entry for IX.1788 (under Notes).
Between March and June 2003 several location changes were recorded in this record in error which in fact related to the similar IX.2786 (which formed part of Loan L397). Because this could have caused confusion if future searches were made for objects forming part of this loan in the Prvious Location field, the relevant location changes were deleted by me in the Master database (PJL, 20/02/04).
