Large fragment of woven fabric. The warp is linen and the weft is mostly purple/red wool with some linen and some yellow wool. The yellow wool weft is used two picks ata time to make a straight line.

One edge has been hemmed with orange/red wool yarn. At this end there is a row of slit tapestry linen in a wave pattern (a series of connected triangles).

Large fragment of yellowed woven wool fabric with purple bands at each end. At one end, the band is approximately 1.1 cm wide. At the opposite end, there there is a divided band with 6 picks of yellow between the two stripes. One stripe is 1 cm wide, the other is 0.9 cm. There are two, possibly, selvedge remnants. One is in the yellow wool only and is in two pieces totaling 18.5 cm long. The fabric, at one point is wider than this selvedge, so it may have been part of a neckline of a tunic. The other selvedge (or edge of slit tapestry) is only at the edge of the double purple band. It is the opposite edge from the other selvedge. This one may be a selvedge because of the extra weft passes. The center yellow wefts also encircle the outside warp, as well as two weft picks above the purple bands. There is a remnant of a weft twining row at one end of the yellow selvedge. The twining loops pass over two warps. Uneven spinning.
