Zoomorphic Horse Applique, c. 1st-3rd Century
Copper alloy; 28mm/13.6gm
Con/ rough; small plow-break on right side, porous surface missing much of the patina, cleaned but not waxed.
Seller's Note/ This charming artifact is a bit perplexing do to the stud seen on the reverse. Without the stud, we'd call it a copper vessel adornment. With the stud? More than likely a furniture or casket adornment. Your guess is as good as ours. :-) Let us know upon purchase if you'd like us to wax it for you!
