Only one roundel is complete, but 9 other partial roundels are also preserved on this fragment.
This fragment preserves tangent and aligned roundels arranged in 3 rows. Each roundel depicts a king with an impaled lion at end of a spear; the image is reversed in alternate columns. The roundels have a pearled border. Interspaces are ornamented with a motif composed of four palmettes in an X formation.
