The beast's snout is concave and would appear to be too elongated for a pig. The end of the snout appears to have two circular depressions depicting the nostrils. The mouth of the beast is biting on a piece of ferrous plate on one side, possibly the rim of a vessel. The plate does not extend to the opposite side. The eyes are …
