My initial thought too, though an interesting stone whether natural or not.

Hi me and my boy-I’d never heard of that practice-very interestingstanslad wrote: ↑Wed Oct 10, 2018 9:24 pmInteresting stone & well found,
I thought a small plague stone, that would be filled with vinegar, then coins left in it outside a diseased village, hamlet etc, to pay for the food delivered & left there by outsiders or merchants,
the vinegar was thought to stop the disease being passed on by the coins.
But it may be a bit small for that?
