Warp of yellow wool, the design consists of two parallel bands in which are woven roundels alternating with oval-shaped motifs formed by curved lines, both enclosing running animals; a peacock (?) is also inside one of the roundels; woven with dark blue wool on a light yellow woolen ground.. The bands are framed by a linear interlaced motif and bordered on one side with a plain dark blue weave; and the area between them is in yellow wool. Probably a fragment of a tunic.
