Other details: The ingenious elegant and continuous knot with which the above tile is ornamented is to be found on a tile in Fordington church Dorset. The same from which the Fylfot (No 357) was removed. The detached `key pattern' with which it is bordered bears so close a similitude to the arms of the Fylfot as to be scarely dissociated from it, indeed Mr Greg gives some examples thus associated one fragment being simply joined to another thus - (diagram of Greek key).
