“An ornament of gold, apparently intended to hang round the neck, found in Athelney, and now in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. The inscription on the side here represented, around the female figure holding flowers, is ‘Aelfred me haet gewercan’ (Alfred had me wrought). On the other side is a flower. The workmanship is in good style.” — Chambers’ Encyclopedia, 1875
