- Fragment of beige woven wool fabric with a small remnant of purple dovetail tapestry at one edge. This section is 2 cm x 4.2 cm. Another section probably existed next to it as there is a 0.8 cm section of beige weft with a few very small remnants of purple dovetailed yarns on the opposite edge from the purple wefts. There is a very small piece of fabric that has adhered to this fragment. This small piece has a bundle of six warps and only a few wefts and is much coarser than the main fragment.
