    Hi druss, can you do another couple of shots of that please, side on and one of the base, as I've got an idea as to what it is but need more views to confirm. Size as well.
    Ta.

    On reflection I'm almost sure it's a well worn molariform tooth from Sargodon tomicus.

    Thanks for the extra pics druss, they confirm my id as given above.




    Image of a complete one found in Italy, about 1m long.
    It had two types of teeth, incisor like ones at the front for snipping shellfish etc off of the rocks and rows of the round (ish) ones for crushing. Think Lepidotes.

    Couldn't it be one of the bones in the ear? Is the bone quite dense?
