Roman bronze lion-shaped mount
 


 

 

A fitting decorated with a lion crouching in profile to the left, gripping the detached leg or head of his prey with both forepaws.

The lion's head is raised and turned toward the viewer, at whom he snarls or roars. His thick mane falls in luxuriant waves down his neck,
over his shoulders and onto his torso. An incised ribbed ridge runs along his back.

Probably part of a chariot.

Very good conservation.
