Abstract

The slender greenish-brown metal object tapers from the head to the sharp point. The head end has eight lobes which suggest a sharply involuted sphere, sometimes referred to as a poppy seed head. There is a forged hole 3.5 cm. below the head. A collar surrounds and reinforces the hole. Incised bands on the shaft extend to the hole and below it for 0.4 cm.
