I've recently purchased this bronze, purportedly featuring the laureate head of Apollo
and a lyre
. It weighs ~7g. I've attached my own pictures as well as those of the seller's. I'm quite inexperienced at spotting alterations, but it looks strange to me, and stylistically doesn't appear "ancient". Would you please look it over and let me know if you believe it has been tooled/enhanced/"repatinated"?
Thanks very much,
