Venus Votive Effigy, ca. 3rd Cent. AD
Lead alloy; 43mm/5.8gm
Con/ Cleaned not waxed
Seller's Note/ Ground-found in Roman Pannonia, such lead effigies are very rare and fragile. Despite 1,700 years in the earth, the image of Venus rising from the sea still remains elegantly evocative.
Rare object and rarely presented.
