Abstract

The item was acquired by Dr. Farid Karam in Lebanon.
The spatula probe has a flat blade shaped like a lancet, probably due to design but possibly due to wear. The flat blade is attached to a neck with circular cross section that expands into a decorated shoulder before becoming a circular section shaft that terminates in an olivary end.
