All three fragments apparently are from the rim of a polycandelon or polycandela similar to BZ.1963.36.5-7 and BZ.1965.1.7-8. Two have a rectangular loop held by rivets, and each of these has a control stamp - on one it is cross-shaped (partly covered by rivet), on the other the long stamp, very close to one of the rivets.
BZ.1965.1.16.a and BZ.1965.1.16.c: two joining fragments from three-lobed end piece.
BZ.1965.1.16.b: single fragment from semicircular end piece.
