Description The terminals of this cast bronze bracelet are in the shape of lion heads. Recessed triangles over the snout and between the ears presumably held inlays. The underside of the head is hollow. This feature, as well as the mint condition of the piece and the presence of zinc in the metal, cast doubt on the authenticity.
