    yes it is a pot metal nut behind the escutcheon and about a 9/16” wrench fits it.
    they tend to crumble when loosened but I believe Geoff sells brass or bronze replacements.
    Years ago a plumber taught me that brass fittings should be tightened ever so slightly to break loose the joint, then the galling is kept to a minimum. The same principle applies to this delicate pot metal.
