UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT

Unique ID: LVPL-5E4C35

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A cast copper alloy of uncertain date and function. The object is in the form of a fish and flat however it is unclear if the object is complete or if each end terminates with an ancient break. Each end is slightly bent and sharp. There are no rivets or forms of attachment visible. The outer face is possibly decorated with punched annulets however pitted corrosion obscures the detail. Traces of gilding are visible on each face. The object has a dark brown patina.
