Plaque with Two Women


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Two female figures holding torches, perhaps deities, are represented rather crudely in gold repoussé relief. There is a hatched border at the sides, cursory "egg-and-dart" pattern at the rounded top, and dotted zigzags at the bottom. A corrugated loop on the back served as the attachment.
