  • Copper alloy figurine of a boar. The back of the figure is arched and carries a row of spikes, of which the rearmost appears to have had the point broken off. It seems likely that this carried one end of an openwork crest, the other end of which had been attached to a backward pointing projection above the head of the figure. The tail is short and stumpy. The ears are large, turned forward and concave on the forward surface. The eyes and nostrils are indicated by punched holes, the mouth by a slit which is carried round either side of the muzzle. The snout is somewhat elongated and turned up at one end. On each foot is a rough stud-like projection which probably originally served to attach the figure to a copper alloy vessel or helmet.
