On this singular gorget was engraved, in Saxon characters, an inscription of the following purport: ``Gurth, the son of Beowulph, is the born thrall of Cedric of Rotherwood.''
He had thin silver bracelets upon his arms, and on his neck a collar of the same metal bearing the inscription, Wamba, the son of Witless, is the thrall of Cedric of Rotherwood.'' This personage had the same sort of sandals with his companion, but instead of the roll of leather thong, his legs were cased in a sort of gaiters, of which one was red and the other yellow.
