Description A small copper alloy figurine of a ram. The surface of the figurine is smooth with moulded detail for horns, ears, and genitalia. Its head is a simple conical shape with two indentations for eyes and a groove to represent the mouth. The hooves of the ram have been picked out with a groove on the underside of the ram's feet. The front right leg of the ram is slightly bent and is positioned slightly forwards of the front left leg, suggesting movement (PAS).
