A very fine Roman bronze handle, which would have originally been attached to a small bronze jug of a typical form. The top section curves to fit the shape of the jug, and is decorated with geometric incised lines and dots. The handle extends downwards and forms a ram’s head as a finial. The ram’s features have been rendered naturalistically through incised lines. It has a pair of large curled horns, and the head is tilted slightly downwards as if about to challenge an opponent.
Date: Circa 1st-3rd Century AD
