Abstract

A solid shaft terminates at one end in a blunt point and at the other end in an embellishment. Three bands embellish the shaft, which then narrows before supporting the embellishment. The embellishment resembles a pointed bud, with a whorl design inscribed so that the lines terminate roughly 90 degrees from their origin at the base of the embellishment. The embellishment itself is just under 1 cm.
