Applique, Lion, Zoomorphic, c. 1st-3rd Cent AD

Copper alloy; 21mm/7.5gm

Con/ Unbroken with glossy green patina, traces of original soldering on the reverse.

Seller's Note/ This charming and unusual applique features the head of a 'closed-mouth' lion fully surrouned by his mane. There is no consensus as per the use of such artifacts other than they were decorative adornments to furniture or vessels.
