Solid metal cylindrical object tapers from a semicircular domed head atop the shaft to a very sharp point. A bore pieces the slender shaft between 4.0 and 4.3 cm. below the domed head. The bore is free of debris and supported by thickened walls on either side of the hole. The shaft is bent several times between the bore and the point.
