Fragment of a white woolen garment, into which is woven with greenish brown and white wool a band with a design of scrolls and conventional plants. The areas of the scrolls are separated by an area that encloses a tree motif. On one end is an oval pendant enclosing an animal, very similar to 15.707, maybe part of the same garment.
