Lead Head
Hollow cast lead figure
of a miniature stylized head.
Pierced from the back, and
possibly crimped on to a
shaft or tang? This specimen
is unusual among the known
assemblage of these strange
objects in that the mold was prepared
along the front and back axis rather
than the left and right axis. The interior
is smooth with no sign of a seam.
Small hole in back, cf. BCC LH9
36.5 x 21.5 x 15mm. 19.02gm.
Surface find, 1974, Caesarea Maritima
J. Berlin Caesarea Collection
