Roman God Votive Effigy, ca. 3rd Cent. AD, Roman Pannonia
Lead alloy; 28mm/15.3gm, head only.
Despite 1,700 years in the earth, the plow-broken image of a Roman God's head still remains elegant, despite the missing body.
Such effigy artifacts were either used in a house-hold shrine or carried by Roman soldiers.
Rare object and rarely presented.
