Not On View
Warp of linen; ground of linen; design woven in brown wool with details in natural colored linen. Design consists of a square panel with a central circle that encloses a mounted figure, probably a hunter, surrounded by four smaller circles at the corners of the square, each enclosing a hunter (?). A hare is in each of upper and lower areas between the hunters and a panther (?) is on each of the sides of the central circle. The square panel is surrounded by an area of looped weft. The design is similar to that in 01.8353. Design shows Roman influence.
