Fragment of gold penannular armlet with goat's head terminal; the hind legs of the goat extend along the hoop whereas the forelegs are bent; cells cut into the body of the animal were originally set with coloured inlays, now missing, as also were the rectangular cells upon the upper surface of the hoop which are formed by thick applied gold wires (five transverse forming arches and one longitudinal), held on with solder.
