Description Legs of game boards or boxes made in the shape of the haunch of a standing bull placed on a high-ribbed plinth are well known in this period. This piece is peculiar: the hoof is that of a reclining animal. It is placed on a plain plinth, the musculature is completely stylized, and the muscles are not marked on the inside. All of these peculiarities make the piece suspect.
