Description A round sheet worked in repoussé with some surface chasing. The central boss is surrounded by eight creatures: lion, deer, scorpion, human figure (?), genitalia (?), lizard (?), bird (?), snake (?). Two circles of dots worked from the back surround the animals. The disk is edged with twisted wire. On the back, a metal strip forms a loop for threading onto a chain.
