R.O.M.A. D.B.7
Obv. Long-legged bird with curved bill standing to l., bill open and one foot raised, about to attack a wriggling snake. On the bird's head is a crest which divides into branches in a manner unknown in nature. It is possible that the engraver intended to give the bird a crown of disk and uraei resting on a plume crest of rather more than natural length.
Rev. Plain.
Serpentine. Scaraboid, upright oval, ca. 19 X 16.
Obv. Rider design, crudely incised; the line representing the lance is not straight. Flattened crescent (?) over horse's head. Usual inscription complete but for last two letters; omicron for omega as often in this phrase.
Rev. Iαωθ (sic) Σαβαωθ Mιχαηλ. Below, roaring lion to r. with snake in front, flat crescent (?) over back.
Bronze. Plaque oblong, spade-shaped, with round corners, 56 X 29, including loop.
